How to get a partial transcript of an image of a microfilm from the Family History Library at SLC?
I’m looking for the birth places of the parents of Ellinor Maria Magdalena Garcarczyk, who was born in Richtersdorf, Silesia, Germany, on March 24, 1919. Her parents were Władysław Gancarczyk and Gertrud Krawice. This city is now Wojtowa Wieś, Katowice, Poland.
The records have been digitised but they are not available online due to restrictions. Here is the response from the Free Lookup Service team:
Restrictions placed by the author/publishers/owners of the record do not allow us, as an organization, to provide a copy of the image that you requested.
However, information on the image can be transcribed for you according to the following direction:
“DO NOT SHARE IMAGES and do not share anything other than names, dates, city/state/country and relationships from this GS/DGS with patrons remotely via phone or on-line. Among the things you should NOT SHARE are health info, SSNs, addresses, phone numbers, anyone that would still be a minor, race, religion, cause of death, etc.”
I’m only looking for the birth places of her parents, nothing else. I don’t live in the US so it’s not possible for me to physically go to SLC. Could someone look it up at the FHL and give me this information? If this is not the right place to ask that kind of thing, please tell me where is this more appropriate.

Thanks in advance
There are a number of options on Cyndi's List, for a start: https://www.cyndislist.com/us/ut/professionals/1
The issue is the date of the records. There are privacy restrictions because of the end dates.
There are researchers, local to Salt Lake, who will retrieve records for a fee.1
Makes sense, thank you. How can I contact these researchers?0
In 2019 I asked on the then Forum about hiring a researcher and was told "Two places to find a researcher in Salt Lake are .... and the Association of Professional Genealogists directory." The website for the latter is
I have no connection with this organisation, and I have not hired a genealogist myself.
You perhaps could also enquire at the Library itself . Many libraries keep a list of people who will do research at their library.0
@MaureenE123 The APGEN directory is included in the link I provided from Cyndi's List.0
