Online FamilySearch microfilm ordering available to CA and the Pacific NW

Kimberly Powell, About.com Guide, tells us the following:


“The new Family History Library microfilm ordering system is continuing to roll out to new Family History Centers (FHCs) in the United States and Canada, retiring the old Inventory Manager system which required you to physically visit the FHC to place your order. July 27th [was] the magic day for California and the remaining western/northwestern U.S. states, with the rest of the United States and Canada to be rolled out in stages throughout the remainder of the year. Check films.familysearch.org and search for your state to see what's available -- and keep checking back because new centers are coming online every few weeks.



Editor's Note: FamilySearch officially sent out a press release on 10 August 2011 to announce the availability of online film ordering to the U.S. Northwest/West Area. This also states that on 24 August 2011, this service might also have become available in the Southeast. Please post a "comment" if this is true.

Editor's Note: Those of us in Raleigh (NC) received an e-mail notification on 26 August that we could now use the online order service and Sharon Tate Moody has reported the same for Florida.
