We have recently become a licensed film centre
for the LDS. You will find below the information needed to find, order and
access LDS film records.
HOW DO I FIND FILM NUMBERS?
Go to the
LDS Family Search website
and go to the
Family History Library Catalogue Link. Here you can search the library
catalogue and find the film number for a variety of records available from
the LDS such as Census and Parish records.
If you do not have a computer we have in the
"Old School" the library catalogue on CD, you will need to look at this on
the main computer in the cupboard. It gives you the opportunity to search
by name, place, keyword etc. If you go to keyword and type in parish
records Norfolk it will show you what is available.
A place search for Norfolk, Thetford would list
records for those areas.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME?
What does it cost - It will cost you $5 to have
a film for a month and $7 for 120 days, if you go over any of those times
you will be required to pay $2 extension time.
There will be no leniency allowed on the above
payment as the group will be required to pay the above stated fees to the
Latter Days Saints. There is no profit for the group from those funds.
Members will be advised by email when their
film arrives, those without email should supply a stamped self addressed
forget Members are able to go seven days a week if they wish to look at
The above is for members only!!
Non members will be able to hire films at the
same costs, but we would expect a donation, we are not permitted to
charge. Non members will be expected to provide a stamped self addressed
envelope or an email address so that I can advise when their film arrives.
There will be two films readers available, so
if there are too many orders at one time a roster will be set up.
We home to have access to a Film Reader/Printer
through the kindness of the Historical Society. A small fee for printing
will be charged.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

THE FULL TITLE SHOWN ON THE LIBRARY CATALOGUE.

IN BY CONTACTING:

Ordering is simple:
