FHL Discontinues Photo Duplication

For those who have been taking advantage of free photo duplication services from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, you will be sorry to learn that the service will be discontinued by 5th Dec. 2014. It's too bad, but I can imagine they were totally swamped with requests.

The official explanation is “As more microfilm and books are digitized and added to, and more links are made available to partner sites that already have this information digitized, the need for photoduplication will decrease. FamilySearch is attempting to digitize as many resources as possible and make these available online. If the film or book has been digitized, you can print your own copies directly from the web site, if printing the image is not restricted by the copyright holder.”

So there you have it.

Cheers on this snowy morning!
