      "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
      on FamilySearch.org.
      *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."
