BBFHS has been an Affiliate Library for Family Search for a number of years, as we have been able to order LDS films and view them at our Research Centre. The film service is now closed, but we have been offered access to digitised records, which previously could only be viewed at an FH Centre.
When using the Family Search Library catalogue, or a record you wish to view, you might see a camera icon and click on it. If at home, the message might say the image can be viewed at a Family History Centre. However, if you are in our Research Centre, you will be able to see the image! This is a wonderful service for our members. Thank you to all the people at Family Search for making this possible.
