All requests for information copied from films, book pages, CDs, marriage, death or birth certificates, wills and/or deeds, etc. will be copied in digital format and emailed to patrons in a zipped PDF or JPG file format. There is no charge for this service if we are able to email to information to patrons.
If a patron does not have an email address, we can mail the information to the patron using the
Postal Service. However, as much as possible, we will rely on
emailing all requests for information through the internet. If patrons do not
own a computer or do not have an email address, they can request to have the
information emailed to their local US ,
where they can print the information at the center. Family
Patrons should request copies by emailing their request to Photoduplication@familysearch.org. All requests MUST include the following information:
Film or Fiche number
Name of Individual(s) referred to in the record
Title of the record
Name of parents, spouse, grantor, grantee, etc.
Event type (Birth, Death or Marriage)
Complete event date and place
Event place (county, parish, township, etc.)
Volume or page number
Registration or Certificate Number
Any other information that will help us locate your record.
If you regularly research the Family History Library in SLC, please do share any other important information or “tips” for those planning a research trip.
