I have a friend in the LDS church who lives in Salt Lake who told me that in 2 weeks, images of The microfilms will be available online for the public to view. Yes that means for example Film#xxxxxxxxxx, Nati, Matrimoni, Morti for a given town would be completely viewable online through the LDS site. Of course there is One snag, the authorities (and they were all contacted) would have had to agree to this. I realize that many will not, but think of the towns accross the world that Would!! This is incredible. I went to my local FHC last night and asked the assistant director, who smiled at me and said yes this was in progress. WOW!!!
aren't you all exited?
LOL...no I didn't even realize that it was april fools day. I assure you this wasn't a joke. My friend and the director did actually tell me those things.
SO...heres hoping it all comes true...
The wait is killing me!
I just wanted to let you know that I work at the FHC and there is no charge for this service. You can visit your local FHC and do all the research you like and use the equipment for free. They only charge for printing copies (10 cents per copy) or if you want to order anything special. Good Luck with your search cioa!
It is my understanding that these records will be on the web for people to view, not restricted to a Family History Center. I spoke with my Director again and she confirmed this. There might be a nominal charge to access the records as there is a certain expense involved on their part. But like anything involving the LDS church..the amount will be negligable.
