Never thought we'd ever say this, but really and truly, there's only one week left to order microfilm from Family Search (LDS)! On September 1, 2017, Family Search will discontinue its microfilm distribution services...forever. The last day to order microfilm will be next Thursday August 31, 2017. If you were thinking of ordering microfilm for your research, better do so quickly.
This change is the result of significant progress made in Family Search’s microfilm digitization efforts and the obsolescence of microfilm technology. More work needs to be done, however. By prioritizing all resources to digitizing the balance of the records in their vaults, their hope is to have all ancestral records accessible online by 2020.
