Monday Mailbox: Duplication Service

The Ancestry Insider's Monday MailboxDear Ancestry Insider,

I recently received from someone a comment that you can now request a document from FamilySearch by email. My feeble brain cannot remember who wrote that. Is it true and how do i do it?

Love your column. It keeps me going when i hit the wall. Started 35 years ago going blind looking at microfiche in the Chicago archives.

Thanks,
Richard E. A'Hern

Dear Richard,

Thank you for your kind comment. We do practice a grand hobby, don’t we?

You heard mostly correct. The Salt Lake FamilySearch Family History Library does offer a photo duplication service. Results are delivered via email. They won’t copy anything online or illegal. Requests are limited to once per month of up to five images. The service is provided free, but you may have to wait some time for the results.

For more information, visit “Photoduplication Services” in the FamilySearch wiki.

Signed,
The Ancestry Insider

  1. Took me over six weeks to get the results. A nice service, but timely it is not.
