If you’ve never used microfilm before in your research, take five minutes to learn how to use the FamilySearch Catalog. Go to FamilySearch.org and click on Learn. A short video shows you how to use a Place Search or Last Name Search to locate microfilms that might be helpful to you in your research.
Once you find a film that you’d like to view, you can order it online at FamilySearch.org/films. If you need help with Online Film Ordering, stop by the FHC and we’ll help. You'll get an e-mail notification when the film arrives.
