Ordering microfilms online
- I just became aware of this:
"FamilySearch’s Microfilm Ordering service is your gateway to a vast
collection of genealogical and historical records. The service allows you
to reserve and loan films to family history centers and affiliate
libraries. The loan is free, but there is a small shipping and handling
charge for each film.
Ordering is simple:
1. Sign in using FamilySearch Accounts with the link in the top right
corner. If you do not have an account, clicking the Sign In link will
prompt you to Register.
2. Locate the microfilm number(s) you want to order from the Family
History Library Catalog <https://familysearch.org/#form=catalog> located
*Note: *Before ordering any film, check to make sure the Family History
Library Catalog does not have a digital copy online.
3. Select your loan type, enter the microfilm number, and click Search.
Repeat this step for additional items.
When you are ready to submit your loan order, click the shopping cart in
the upper right portion of the screen. You will then have a chance to
review and confirm your order. After you submit your order, all films will
be delivered to your designated family history center."

There is a second set of film numbers (3 or 4 digits) and usually a big banner heading in red.
