Genealogy Microfilm

On September 1, 2017, FamilySearch will discontinue its microfilm distribution services. This change is the result of significant progress made in FamilySearch’s microfilm digitization efforts and the obsolescence of microfilm technology. Please read the FAQ on their webiste.

Genealogy microfilm from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City is available through the Peninsula Center Library.  Requests are now placed online directly with the Family History Library.
