RLP 22: How to Find the Original Record
In our podcast episode today, Diana and I discuss what to do when you find an indexed record entry on FamilySearch with no image attached. If there is a microfilm number in the citation, you can use that to find the digitized images of the microfilm and locate the original image of that baptism record or marriage bond. We’ll discuss some of our tips for using the image viewer and finding the right page among the hundreds of images.
