Has Anyone Got Any LDS microfilms Experience?

I've been directed to some LDS microfilms and would like some advice from anyone who might have some some experience with the LDS. The micros I have been directed to are numbered 1364501-1364556. I will need to order these items so they can be borrowed from my local LDS Centre. It is 55 micros - will I be charged a separate fee for each micro or will I just be charged one fee considering they will all be delivered at once?

I also have a question regarding microfilms from the LDS: Do I order the film through them or through their website? I'm sorry for the interruption in your topic, but I thought it would save room on the forum.

I believe each one will be a separate charge. Do you need all 55 ? Can you do further searching to see which ones have your specific information?

You order through your FHC, and they must stay there.

The FHC has a great website thich answers all of these question.

And there was me about to tell everyone about my experience in the Ye Golden Lion and my aversion to patterned carpet to this day :)

I have managed to narrow it down a little. I'm after the SS Labour Camp records and there doesn't seem to be much sense in the filing system of them and with only the first and last name listed which are on each micro, there isn't much to let me know what is inside. They aren't even listed alphabetically!

Is any one familiar with the Labour Camp records?

what does LDS stand for?

Yes, LDS stands for Latter Day Saints, which are the Mormons. They have a massive library in Utah which stores genealogy information from all corners of the globe. Some of it is available free online, some of it is stored on microfilms/fische which need to be ordered and they will send the micros to your local LDS Centre where you can view them.

Haha, I had a dyslexic moment and seriously read the thread as Has Anyone Got Any LSD Experience. So I came in because I was curious to see what people would write about. :-)

I also have a question regarding microfilms from the LDS:

koach, when you order them, it has to be at the local LDS , you have to pay for them
up front, no matter what they will get to the library in about two weeks or so depending on the mail.

you can pay more to make them permanent or for I think its a month then they go
back..

ha hahahahaa.. excuse my moment.. lol it finally hit me what a micro is..
been cleaning all day maybe the cleaning substances got to me.. or the lsd

Ok the longer I'm in here the more I think it really might be about LSD, considering I have no clue what the hell you're talking about! ;-)

Yeah I got the microfilm part, I knew what he was talking about. I was confused as hell about how you could totally answer his question and then turn right around and ask him what he was talking about.

* wipes tears away from laughing*

Are you sure you didn't take some today? ;-)
