FamilySearch’s Microfilm Ordering service is your gateway to a vast collection of genealogical and historical records. The service allows you to reserve and loan films to family history centers. The loan is free, but there is a small shipping and handling charge for each film.

Ordering is simple:

  1. Sign up for a free account.
  2. Locate the microfilm number(s) you want to order from the Family History Library Catalog located on
    Note: Before ordering any film, check with the local family history center to ensure that the film is not already available at that location.
  3. Select your loan type, enter the microfilm number, and click Search. Repeat this step for additional items.
    There are two types of loans:
    Short-term loans apply to microfilms only, and the films must be returned within 90 days. A 60-day renewal option is available after your short-term loan expires.
    Extended loans apply to both microfilm and microfiche. There is no set return date.

When you are ready to submit your loan order, click the shopping cart in the upper right portion of the screen. You will then have a chance to review and confirm your order. After you submit your order, all films will be delivered to your designated family history center.
