I’m frustrated

Please show if a film or microfiche still exists in a local FHL.

Since stopping the online ordering of films and fiche to be sent to local FHLs, the ability to see if a film or fiche already exists at a local FHL has also been dropped. This means I need to make a useless trip to my local FHL just to find out that they don't have a copy. For disabled people, that is more than a simple inconvenience.

  • This information came from the team who has entered information into the Family History Catalog for those family history centers that sent in their microfilm inventory.
    "If the center’s holdings have been entered into the catalog, the patron can filter the search by the center either at the beginning of the search or after the search has been made.  If the holdings of the center were there before the film ordering ceased they are there now".
