I don't know if this is the proper place to do this, but for citation purposes, I wanted to know the microfilm roll number.  I assume that the number that appears in the breadcrumbs between the title of the database and the name of the registrant is the film number. When I search for that film number in the catalog, no results are returned. For example, the number that appears for the card of interest is 4161422. However, it might be better to use the NARA microfilm number anyway. 

The film number is usually listed as film number (see the example below). I suspect what you are looking at is the Digital Folder Number.

In addition the Family History Library does not have film numbers above 3000000.
