Question 5[edit | edit source]

Question 5: Why is there a camera beside the name of a person indicating that there is an image to view, but no image is available?
Answer: The owner of the original records has the right to restrict which records we are permitted to show on-line. In this collection, some of the records are available to view; others are not. If you receive the message that the image is not available, you can order the films at Ordering Microfilm and Microfiche and view the image at your local FamilySearch (formerly Family History) Center. The film number is listed near the bottom of the indexed information page.
