Well, if you live in Australia or New Zealand you can, anyway. Thanks to @CaroleRiley on Twitter for pointing out that researchers “down under” can now submit orders online for microfilm from the Family History Library.

As part of the ordering process, patrons select a local Family History Center to which the film will be shipped. Online registration is required; payment is via credit card. A User’s Guide explains the procedure in detail. One cool feature: you’ll be able to check the status of your film order online too.

The obvious question: when will this service be available in the US, Canada, and elsewhere?
