PHOTO DUPLICATION SERVICES AT FAMILY SEARCH WILL BE DISCONTINUED ON DECEMBER 5, 2014
Here is the link to the family search page explaining it:
I've copied this from their page:
As more microfilm and books are digitized and added to FamilySearch.org, and more links are made available to partner sites that already have this information digitized, the need for photoduplication will decrease. FamilySearch is attempting to digitize as many resources as possible and make these available online. If the film or book has been digitized, you can print your own copies directly from the web site, if printing the image is not restricted by the copyright holder.
To find the resources that are digitzed, please visit the FamilySearch Catalog at: https://familysearch.org/catalog-search(You can also go to familysearch.org, select Search, then Catalog.) Also available on the Catalog page is a link to OCLC WorldCat. WorldCat can help you find books and other resources in over 10,000 local libraries.
If the film or book you are seeking is not digitized yet, and is available on microfiche or microfilm, it can usually be ordered and sent to a local family history center, where you can view the resource. You can find a local family history center by going to:
https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Introduction_to_LDS_Family_History_Centers Staff at the family history center can assist you with the process of ordering the film, and can help you view it when it arrives.
I know that I still have a list of requests I wanted to submit. I guess if we get them in before Dec 5th they will honor them.
Good luck everyone.

Thank you Diane. I was so excited about the three images I've received and have two more pending. I live overseas and I hate asking for elp but I may have to find a friend in Virginia to do lookups for me on the microfilm at the Library of Virginia. ~ CathyReplyDelete
Cathy - I'm with you. Getting those emails with the attached records was such a thrill. We'll all find other ways to get our records, but I'm pretty bummed about this service being discontinued.ReplyDelete
