I have been researching with Familysearch for over 37 years - first at the Johannesburg Family History Library and now in Thornlie, Perth, Australia. For some time I did Indexing of your records, but after my computer bombed, I was unable to rejoin the Indexing programme. I am 87 years old and, with Covid restrictions, either am unable, or reluctant to visit the library. Would it be possible to give me private access to the records, which can only be obtained by visiting a library? I would be most grateful. - Zephne Richardson.
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Just in passing ...
You are not alone ...
Countless, Users/Patrons, ALL around the World, are just like you, in the EXACT Same situation/circumstance.
That Said ...
I am sorry to say ...
Short Answer: Unfortunately, NOT.
That is SOMETHING, that, MANY; Many; many, of us would LOVE ...
But, unfortunately, 'FamilySearch' (ie. the Church) could not accede to such.
[ Especially, for ONE lone individual/person; &, that includes, whether or not, one is a Member of the Church ]
'FamilySearch' (ie. the Church), would LOVE, to make ALL the Records, it holds, FREELY available and accessible to ALL.
Unfortunately, 'FamilySearch' (ie. the Church), CANNOT; as, it is CONTRAINED, by the VARIOUS "Contractual Arrangements/Agreement", that it has in place, with the ALL the VARIOUS "Record" Custodians, from whom it has obtained all the Records; plus, also, on the grounds of "Privacy"; where, "Living" individuals/persons, are involved.
I am sorry, that I could not provide you with any joy; nor, what you desire.
I know, that this certainly does not help/assist; but, I hope, that this may provide you with, some additional, insight; and, perspective.
ps: I used to be, a Member, of the Perth Australia Southern River Stake (and, even Thornlie Ward; plus, a couple of others), many Years ago; and, I know the Stake Centre well.
As an aside ...
Just in case, you were not aware ...
Can I humbly suggest, that you my like to avail yourself, of the FREE "Look-Up" Service, provided by the Family History Library (FHL), in "Temple Square", in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
Here are a couple of Articles, with links to, that FREE "Look-Up" Service

I hope, that this may just help/assist, somewhat.
