Many of the items from the collections of the Family History Library are now easier to access:
FamilySearch has announced that many of you can order microforms from Salt Lake City from your home computer. Heretofore, one had to visit a local Family History Center to fill out the paperwork to order microfilm and microfiche from the collections of the Family History Center for viewing in local centers. Now, researchers in many areas worldwide can place requests online. This will eliminate the need to travel to a Family History Center just to place an order. The film or fiche will still be delivered to your nearest Center for your use. Since most Centers are staffed by volunteers they may have limited hours and even be closed for extended periods of time. Now ordering can be completed at your convenience at the time you identify an item of interest.
