Access to FamilySearch virtual films at Cook

Visitors to the Library now have access to nearly all digital collections on the FamilySearch website – if a record shows as only being viewable at a Family History Library or Affiliate Library that means you can view it at the Library. Access is immediate and you can accomplish a lot in a short time. Moreover, you do not have to pay to get the film posted from FamilySearch. Thank you FamilySearch for setting up this great service!
