Changes in the loan of LDS microfilm

Effective September 1, 2017 the LDS Family History Center will no longer loan microfilm to its affiliates (SNO is an affiliate).   The supply of unexposed microfilm and duplication equipment has forced them to make this decision.  For more details about the reasons, please see their website.

But on the upside, there are some amazing digitization efforts going on and you will see that content on FamilySearch.org.  For more information about the decision and the implications, please check the FAQ on the FamilySearch.org website.

Sanborn Maps Online!

From Genealogy Gems:

Breaking news! The Library of Congress has put online nearly 25,000 additional Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps–and more are coming! Over the next three years, more will be added monthly until all 50 states are covered from the 1880s through the 1960s.

Sanborn maps show detailed information about neighborhoods, buildings, roads and more for thousands of towns in the U.S. and beyond. A sizable collection of pre-1900 Sanborn maps are already online at the Library of Congress (use the above link).
