FamilySearch announced June 26 that it plans to discontinue its 80-year-old microfilm distribution service. The transition is the result of significant progress made in FamilySearch’s microfilm digitization efforts and the obsolescence of microfilm technology. The last day for ordering microfilm will be August 31, 2017. Online access to digital images of the world’s historic records allows FamilySearch to service more people around the globe, faster and more efficiently.
“Preserving historic records is only one-half of the equation. Making them easily accessible to family historians and researchers worldwide when they need them is the other crucial component.” —Diane Loosle, director of FamilySearch Patron Services Division
