The fact that the Catalog shows no camera icon alongside the film number entry indicate the microfilm is not available at all through FamilySearch. The message displayed on the page at https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/452818?availability=Family%20History%20Library shows:
Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:
- The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
- The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
So, no, although the film has been digitized, you will not be able to read the original information, unless these records are available through another source (e.g. a commercial website).0
If you look up either the digital folder number or the microfilm number in the catalog (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/452818), you'll see that the images are digitized but unavailable online on FamilySearch:
Further up on the catalog page, however, there's a link to Irish Genealogy.ie (https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/), which may have the images in question. I haven't explored that site, but you'll likely need to look for the record by place and date, not by FS's numbers.
It looks like all three Michael and Ann Daly results on film 7718680 are for the same event, the birth/baptism of their son John Daly on 10 October 1864 in Drumnakilly, County Tyrone, near Omagh. The civil registration index has been incorrectly standardized by FamilySearch to a different Drumnakilly in Donegal.
If you scroll further down he main page it will tell you where the records come from. Some records are on microfilm some of which are available on line some of which have not been digitalised yet.0
So under document information it has:
Digital Folder Number 007718680
Microfilm Number 101096
Originating System ODM
Indexing Batch C01183-7
Is there a way I can see the original documents to see more information as currently this is all it shows and no information about Births or Marriages?0
I gave up and went to the Irish genealogy site. They do not make it easy to navigate or link to a record, but they do have the register page on which John Daly's birth in 1864 is recorded, as a PDF:
