Hello, can someone tell me who to send an email, to request the Philippine, Iloilo, Iloilo City Civil Registration films and Philippine, Iloilo, Iloilo City Church records be digitized and then eventually indexed?
Thankyou for your question and by going to the help center located on the top right of your familysearch log in screen, then choose Indexing.
If you type in request to digitise:
It come up with this article
Hope it helps, there is also another connected article as well here: https://www.familysearch.org/help/helpcenter/article/what-are-the-upcoming-indexing-projects
Hope this helps clarify things for you
All the best
Thanks for the reply. I'll just have to wait on when will family search digitize those films
You seem to be implying that these records have never been filmed by FamilySearch. If that is the case, you would need to discuss with the record custodians whether they would be willing to ask Family Search to film their records, and if so they should use the FamilySearch form Contact Us applicable for Records Custodians and Archives. Family Search does have priorities, see "FamilySearch’s Strategy to Help Preserve the World's Archives" 20 April 2018, so the request may not necessarily be granted.
And further to @MaureenE123 's comments, the Catholic Church has a policy that their records should not be filmed by FamilySearch. But I did see about two years ago that a Catholic Diocese in the Philippines whose records had been destroyed in a typhoon was publicly thankful that FamilySearch had filmed them, and was given a free copy of these records by FamilySearch. So perhaps in the Philippines this policy is not enforced due to the frequency of natural disasters.
You can make a request to have non-digitized microfilms digitized. We will move your question to the Q and A Search field where moderators can help you understand the process.
