How can I request a microfilm to be digitized?
I'd like to request that a certain record that is currently only available on film be added to your list for digitization. Can you tell me how I can request records be digitized?
The one I need the most is the film 2126705 of this catalog: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/1042935?availability=Family%20History%20Library
All microfilm has been digitized. The project was completed in 2021. The film reel icon now indicates that you cannot view the digitized images from your location. That may be due to contract limitations between FamilySearch and the original record creator/holder.2
All microfilms in FamilySearch's holdings have been digitized. You can see in the catalog that your desired film has both a film number and an "Image Group Number (DGS)"; the latter is the number assigned to the group of digital images corresponding to that microfilm.
The film reel icon in the catalog now means "not available [to you] online". This is usually due to either contractual or privacy concerns: for example, the record custodian may be charging a fee for viewing the images on another website, or some part of the film's contents may be too recent to be made public.
Some films have different access for different types of accounts and for different locations; for example, LDS accounts can often see images that public accounts like mine cannot. What the catalog shows you about access depends on whether you're signed in, where, and with what type of account; unfortunately, it doesn't tell you whether that access would change with a change to any of those parameters, so for example, you cannot tell, when you're viewing images at your local Family History Center, which of those images will be unavailable to you at home.2
