One is Millard Fillmore Wilson He was born March 11, 1852 in Wheeling, Ohio and died March 1, 1939 in Knox County, Illinois. Thanks for your help.
In most cases you are able to get certificates directly from the state
FamilySearch has birth and death collections. Take a look at this link to the Guided Research Page on FamilySearch. Click on Birth and search the collection. Also do the same for the Death. You can view some images as well as the record details located to the far right of the person you are searching for. If you have other questions, don't hesitate to ask.
You indicate that the "Certificates" are referenced on 'FamilySearch'.
Question: What are the references (eg. Film or URL)?
That 'Group', where you posted, being "How to Use FamilySearch Community", in this "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, is more to do with HOW to USE the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, rather than for help/assistance regarding Research.
As such ...
I am "Moving" this 'Question' of yours, in the 'Group' being "How to Use FamilySearch Community", in this "Community.FamilySearch" Forum, to the 'Group' being "General Questions", in the Forum; so that, the members of that group can answer/assist you.
As an aside ...
I am ALSO "Tagging" this 'Question' of yours, to some specific 'Groups' in the Forum being:
(1) "United States Genealogy Research"; and,
(2) "Ohio Ancestors"; and,
(3) "Midwest" ... [ which includes: Illinois ],
in the hope that, the members of those groups may be able to answer/assist you.
Those Groups are "Public", which you can join, if you wish.
I hope this helps.

Citing this Record
Family History Library microfilm 1819609 referenced on the death index is available to view at the Family History Library or a local LDS Family History Center once they open again. [Note that you can find what's on the film by putting the film number into the catalog from the Search page.] This is likely a regular death certificate.
Birth certificates are unlikely in the 1850s. Statewide vital records registration began in 1907 with general compliance at some later time. (This means that many births were not recorded.) Here's a link to the film with births from 1867-1908 - too late for the 1852 birthdate.)
There are a multitude of other places to look for death information. The web site I like is:
https://www.deathindexes.com/ohio/index.html. It even breaks things down by county. This web site is also good for other sstates.
I thought that ordering films was no longer done. And that if you want to view it you would have to go to the Salt Lake Library. I think they plan to digitize a lot of records but I have a friend that wants to see a microfilm called Prior family Bible records, ca. 1778-1949. It is on film 262736, Item 1. It is not digitized.
@Jo Minert9 Ordering films is no longer done. If a film is not available digitally, you can request that it be digitized through the
"Contact us" form (linked here).
Another option is to check WorldCat.org for another copy of the record that you need. The Prior Family Bible Records are only listed as available at the Family History Library. (link) The WorldCat link does give some details about the family included in the record.
The Daughters of the American Revolution website has some bible entries - perhaps, a copy of it is available there.
Many films are intentionally not available in digital format - because they are under copyright.
Requesting them to be digitized - will not over-ride the restriction if they are under copyright (most items published after 1923)
Here ya go for Millard Fillmore Wilson
WOW! Thanks a bunch!
