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. 
  • 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.
