FamilySearch: Digital Records Access

FamilySearch is the world's largest repository of free genealogical records and manages the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. For many years, FamilySearch provided microfilm distribution to affiliate libraries and our patrons. Now, they are pleased to announce that they are in the process of digitizing their microfilm collection! Once digitized, most microfilm records can be viewed instantly, without any special equipment beyond your web browser. Visit FamilySearch and browse their catalog to see if the film you need has been digitized (or see other ways to access it).

Need more access? LCPL is an affiliate library; searching FamilySearch from any LCPL location will give you access to 25% more records than searching from home on a basic account!
