I heard the opposite a few months ago. I heard the Church has denied the microfilming of Church records.

I will call my FHC this morning and ask the director if she has hear anything.

I don't think they'll never have the opportunity to microfilm that records 8)
Sometimes the Catholic Church don't (even) allow you to consult the documents it owns... imagine if they can authorize someone (and especially L.D.S.) to do a complete scanning :roll:
