Following on from 'Paul's' answer ...
Can I make an indexing request for records?
Where it states:
FamilySearch cannot accept requests to index-specific collections.
As we continue to grow, we are eager to provide as many records on the Internet as possible. However, the process for retrieving, indexing, and publishing records can be complicated, and it may take us some time to provide certain records. Some reasons for slower processing include:
We are as excited as you are to have more records available. We thank you for your patience as we work toward that goal.
Certainly NOT what you wanted to 'hear' ...
That said ...
You can always, try; and, humbly request, that 'FamilySearch' IMPROVE/INCREASE the "Priority" of the "Indexing" of that particular Film, in the "Queue".
'FamilySearch', may; or, may not, accede to you humble request.
You could do that through a 'FamilySearch' "Support" Case.
[ ie. Under "Help" (ie. 'Question Mark' in 'Circle); and, "Contact Use";
. OR, "FEEDBACK"; and, "Report a Problem" ]
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I hope this helps.
. . . and what are you hoping to find on those LDS microfiche files?
dont focus on the "format" (microfiche, microfilm, digital)
focus on the record/book/source that you are looking for specifically.
I am trying to view LDS 0838079-Vol. 13 that I believe has the townland property records in Ireland for our family.
Unfortunately, you will have to wait until this item is digitised. I see from the Catalog that volumes 21-35 are available for viewing (from home), so hopefully the other volumes will eventually be available, too.
I believe it has been suggested priority has been given to digitising microfilms, but perhaps another participant of this forum can advise if a request can be made to FamilySearch to prioritise specific microfiches, too.
In case you are not already aware, neither microfilms nor microfiches can be ordered for viewing at a Family History Centre, although it appears (when open) this material can be viewed at the Family history Library in Salt Lake City.
This microfilm (not microfiche) 0838079 appears to be part of the catalogue record
All the microfilms appear to have been digitised, but some are available on home computers, as mentioned by Paul W, where as some have the microfilm icon showing they are only viewable on microfilm.
This seems to be an inconsistency, as all the records seem to be of a similar nature. I would use the Errors? button at the bottom of the catalogue record to point out the inconsistency and ask that all the records showing the microfilm icon be changed so that they are viewable on home computers, similar to the other records on the page.
