NEWSFLASH @ end June 2017 Inmemorium - FamilySearch microfilms gone

FamilySearch have announced they will discontinue their microfilm distribution services on September 1, 2017.

All orders placed by 31 August 2017 will be honoured, so any orders by members will need to be received by WAGS no later than 30 August

The change is the result of significant progress made in FamilySearch’s microfilm digitization efforts, the cost of production and distribution and the obsolescence of microfilm technology. To read the announcement follow this link.
