Check out our ScanPro 2000 digital microfilm/fiche reader! The new reader, and its accompanying computer, printer, and scanner represent top-of-the-line technology for viewing, printing, and saving images from FamilySearch microfilms and fiche.

If you’ve never used microfilm before in your research, take five minutes to learn how to use the Family History Library 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.
