October 22, 2013
Ever wish you could visit the Family History Library in Salt Lake City to look at microfilm?? Well, you don’t have to travel that far! You can order the film from Familysearch.org and have it sent to any participating library or Family History Center.
The Midwest Genealogy Center is one such place that you may have your film sent to from the Family History Library. Search their catalog and find the film numbers that you need, and then go to www.familysearch.org/films to place an order online. You will need a personal email address, and you will also be asked to set up a free Family Search account. Then, you will be ready to order your film. You will be notified by email when your microfilm order is shipped. You will also be notified by email when the film has arrived here at the Midwest Genealogy Center. The charge for a short term loan (90 days) is $7.50, an extended (indefinite) loan is $18.75, and the charge for microfiche is $4.75. If you have any questions about ordering film from the Family History Library, the staff at MGC will be glad to help. Also, you can find answers to questions about ordering film on our website.
