Would it be possible to make the following records available for online viewing?
Newfoundland - Land records, 1803-1990
Newfoundland - Land records, 1825 - Feb. 1931; indexes, 1825-1938
Access to the images is determined by the Record Custodian. Would you plese reply and give us a couple film numbers to ensure we are lookng at the same Collection as yourself? We can then determine if they need to be digitized.
Thank-you for getting back to me! Here are the two collections I am interested in (both under Canada, Newfoundland - Land and Property).
Land records, 1825-Feb. 1931; indexes, 1825-1938

Gerard, thank you for sending that film #.
When we look at it in the Catalog we can see that the collection has been digitized. However, that fact there is still a film reel icon indicates that those images are not available for viewing.
In Support we do not have access to just why that is the case. They may simply be in the pipeline and not ready yet. Or there may be delays in the negotiations with the Custodian. Or there may be legal matters that need to be resolved by the Custodian before they can be publicly available online.
You MAY have some success if you are able to contact the Custodian to inquire.

Sorry that we cannot give you a more definitive answer. There are MANY variables to resolve from the time a record custodian requests that FamilySearch film the records until everyone has access to the images.
To view these images do one of the following:

We wish you success in your research.
Thank-you for your help! I will look into your suggestions.
