FamilySearch Raises Microfilm Rental Fee
Posted by Diane
Effective Wed., Feb. 15, FamilySearch will raise the fee for renting Family History Library (FHL) microfilm through FamilySearch Centers in the United States and Canada. The higher fee is "due to the increase in the price of raw microfilm stock and the decreasing availability of this product on the market."(The FHL typically reproduces films for loan to FamilySearch Centers.)
The price for a short-term film loan will be $7.50 per roll (that's up from $5.50), with another $7.50 to extend the loan. An extended film loan costs $18.75. A microfiche loan costs $4.75.
See the full announcement from FamilySearch here.
FamilySearch is posting millions of digitized records (which are being indexed by volunteers) on FamilySearch.org; see if the records you need are there before you pay to rent the film.
