@AndrewWeilandt Has your question been answered? You have been given a couple of good options.
If one of them is satisfactory, please make it as ACCEPTED and others will know you have the help you requested.
You wish to have help accessing the FHL film number you have for a marriage record from Scotland. Have you tried searching for it under the Search tab on Family Tree, click Search, then Record, and scroll down to click film number in the appropriate box.
Or you may wish to contact the Family History Library for a consultation. Use this link: Family History Library Online Consultations are free, 20-minute consultations with a specialist from the Family History Library, or try Research Wiki, and search for it from there. Click on the link, and follow the scroll down to find " Book your virtual genealogy consultation" tab. The top URL link may have other helpful suggestions.
Good luck in finding the marriage information from the film.
You can try accessing this film through the Catalog: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog
However I strongly suspect that you will not be able to view the images from home. This is due to contracts with the record owners, and if this is a civil marriage, then the owner is ScotlandsPeople, who of course does not want people to use FamilySearch as a way to get around their charges. If that is the case, there will be a message saying how to access the records. You may need to be at a Family History Center (FHC) or Affiliate Library. If you get the message:
"To view these images do one of the following: You may be able to view this image by visiting one of our partners' sites or the legal record custodian (fees may apply)"
it means that you have to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
If you need help with this, then post a comment with the FHL film number and I will help you.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron.
[ And, one with 'limited' funds ... ]
As an aside ...
For "Scottish" records ...
Have you ever, used; or, considered using, the "ScotlandPeople" Website.
That website is maintained by the Government of Scotland.
Through the "National Records of Scotland".
ANYONE can become a "Registered" User/Patron, it is FREE; and, can search the "Indexes" for FREE.
Those "Indexes" are basic; but, do provide a good amount of information.
The "Cost", of obtaining an individual "Copy" of "Image", of the actual "Record" (of an "index"), is more than quite reasonable, certainly not too expensive.
'Civil Registration' for "Marriage" commenced in about 1855 in Scotland; so, you should be able to find that 1859 Marriage you are seeking.
Just a passing thought.
I appreciate all the responses.
I lost track of the record I was looking at but found this on myheritage. I have tried searching through indexes on websites such as ScotlandPeople but am unable to find this record. It is all very confusing:
Name: Jessie Wilson & William Fyfe
Marriage: Mar 4 1859 Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland
Wife: Jessie Wilson
Husband: William Fyfe
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M11685-1
System Origin: Scotland-ODMGS
Film number: 6035516
Family Search also has this: William Fyfe, "Scotland Marriages, 1561-1910" • FamilySearch
@AndrewWeilandt, this is the Catalog entry for film 6035516: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/593463?availability=Family%20History%20Library
It seems from that page that the marriage of Jessie Wilson and William Fyfe you found is a civil marriage. It should be on the ScotlandsPeople website. If you can't find it then you could try contacting them.
The FS catalogue reference for 6035516 is https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/593463
"Register of births, marriages and deaths of Scotland Statement of Responsibility: compiled by British Reference of the Family History Library, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City, Utah"
"A guide to Family History Library film numbers for the civil registration certificates of Scotland."
For the last record you quote the Microfilm Number is 280240 https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/79310
Registers of births, marriages, and deaths, 1855-1875, 1881, 1891; and general index, 1855-1956
Microfilm of records at The New Register House, Edinburgh.
There are 45 pages of microfilms listed, I clicked on one on the 1st page (which was a birth) as a sample and got the message
Taking an overall view, I would have thought there would have been a record on ScotlandsPeople. Perhaps some one familiar with that website could locate a record there.
Edit: A van Helsdingen's response not displaying to me when my reply posted.
Granted using the "ScotlandPeoples" Website does take some practice; but, when you get to know how, it is not so confusing.
In your case ...
On the Home/Landing page/screen of "the "ScotlandPeoples" Website, select that "Advance Search".
And, then, when the next page/screen appears, the "Statutory Registers" appears as the "Default", it is a matter of going DOWN that page/screen; and, then, "Marriages".
That record for for the "Marriage" of, "William FYFE" and, "Jessie WILSON", in 1859, in 'Registration District' of "St,George", in Edinburgh, in Scotland, certainly is in the "ScotlandPeoples" Website, under that of "Statutory Registers"; and, "Marriages".
Like all things new, the "ScotlandPeoples" Website, just takes getting used to.
Once one get used to the "ScotlandPeoples" Website it is a GREAT Resource.
I hope this helps.
@Brett . Thank you! That was it. It has both the father and mother which I was not expecting! Thank you! I have been stuck on this for a long time.
William's Mother was Jane (?)
and his father's name was George Fyfe. I found this while searching with Google. Given that George's son is William Baxter Collier Fyfe, born in Dundee, it probably isn't a coincidence that this record contains all of those names and the location?

@AndrewWeilandt , you should find both parents' names on all civil birth, marriage and deaths records after 1855 in Scotland (unless their names were unknown). You can get all of these records from ScotlandsPeople.
I am so glad you found what you wanted.
"ScotlandsPeople" is great just for the "Indexes" alone; especially, as the information in the "Indexes" is FREE.
I cannot afford to pay for copies of everything; so, I find the information from the "Indexes" is sufficient in many cases.
As well a records pertaining to 'Civil Registration' (ie. 1855 onwards) ...
There are ALSO the 'Church Registers' containing records, from the "Church of Scotland"; plus, some "Roman Catholic Church"; and, "Other Churches".
Not to mention some other useful records being. Census; Valuation Rolls; Legal Records; Poor Relief and Migration; and, Kirk Sessions.
I often use the Census records to 'Triangulate' the Families and their family members - I use that "Forename of other person on that census page" option to cross-reference the Family and its family members. After some practice, it really does work.
By the way ...
Just in case you were not aware ...
There is a 'Group' in this "Community.FamilySearch" Form for "Scotland".
Simply "Join" a 'Group', where one can, ask 'Questions'; browse other members questions; or, just use the "Links" to Other 'On-Line' Resources.
Unfortunately, the 'Groups' in the Forum, are NOT as active, as they used to be, due to the Forum "Changing" to the NEW (ie. Current) Platform, a few Months ago.
But, that said, the 'Groups', are still USEFUL; as, the are "Links" to some great 'On-Line' Resources.
