Through our affiliation with the Church of Latter-Day Saints/LDS (The Morman Church) Family History Library (FHL) in Salt Lake City, Utah, you are able to gain access to their 2.4 million microfilmed records Monday – Friday, 9-4.
Because of our limited staff and volunteer time, you will need to visit Familysearch.org and locate the films or fiche you would like to borrow. You will need to order the film on-line, pay with your credit card or PayPal and have it sent to the museum. If you like, you will be able to select SCHS as your default library. Your information will be sent to us as well as the film and within 15 – 30 days we will notify you that your order is in. More complete information on the film ordering process can be found on their website page here.
When the film arrives, even if you are not a member of the Historical Society, you can view it for free on our research room microfilm reader. Contact SCHS 320.589.1719 to learn more about our pricing for printing and research assistance.
