Microfilm Lending Service

As of September 8, 2017 Family Search has discontinued their microfilm lending service. 

  • Instead, they are working toward digitizing the microfilm collection and making many of the images freely available to the public.
  • The Gale Family Library is a FamilySearch affiliated library and as such now has onsite access to digital images and records that can only be viewed at Family Search Affiliate Libraries and Family History Centers.
  • Family Search microfilm that is currently at the Gale Family Library will remain on site until the film has been digitized. An inventoried list of this microfilm will be available onsite in late 2017.
  • Family Search has put together an informative page of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the digital conversion of microfilm, including information on how to find out if a specific film has been digitized.
  • Researchers can request up to 5 films for priority scanning. More information on how to place a request can be found at: Requesting that FamilySearch digitize (scan) a microfilm.
