Photo duplication Services were discontinued as of December 5, 2014. As of this date, existing orders will be completed, but new orders will not be accepted.


As more microfilm and books are digitized and added to FamilySearch.org, and more links are made available to partner sites that already have this information digitized, the need for photoduplication will decrease. FamilySearch is attempting to digitize as many resources as possible and make these available online. If the film or book has been digitized, you can print your own copies directly from the web site, if printing the image is not restricted by the copyright holder.


To find the resources that are digitized, please visit the FamilySearch Catalog (You can also go to https://familysearch.org, click on the "Search" menu, and then click on the "Catalog" link.)  Also available on the Catalog page is a link to OCLC WorldCat. OCLC WorldCat can help you find books and other resources in over 10,000 local libraries.


If the film or book you are seeking is not digitized yet, and is available on microfiche or microfilm, it can usually be ordered and sent to a local family history center, where you can view the resource. You can find a local family history center by going to the FamilySearch website.

Staff at the family history center can assist you with the process of ordering the film, and can help you view it when it arrives.
