Access to Digitized Records When Local History Records Are Not Open Due to COVIDduring the sht
I'm beyond frustrated! When the service was still available, I had three rolls of microfilm with Italian records sent to my local Michigan Family History Center. When COVID caused them to close, I have not been able to search the records. Now I see the records have been digitized but it has the camera with a key above icon which indicates that the digitized images can only be viewed at a local history center! Ugh! They are still closed (I've called all of them within a two-hour drive from my home) and they don't even answer the phone! What good are these digitized records if they cannot be accessed!?! I would like to recommend that during the shutdowns of our local family history centers due to COVID, that Family Search open access to the digitized images online from their website. Ancestry has been very generous during COVIC and opened up access to their Library Edition for any library patron to use from home. Please, please Family Search, help us out!
