Poll On The Right Sidebar Has Been Closed For “Have You Ordered A Microfilm Reel Using The Online Ordering Process Through FamilySearch.org (Mormon Website)?”; Results Indicated

Hi Everyone!

It is amazing that about  2 1/2 months has passed on the life of the poll I had on the right sidebar of the blog since November 3, 2014.  It is time to move on!  I think a new poll question is in order!

The poll had asked the question “Have You Ordered A Microfilm Reel Using The Online Ordering Process Through FamilySearch.org (Mormon Website)”?

The results of the poll showed the following from the 47 total respondents that took the brief time to provide their “Yes” or “No” response to the question.  The numbers show that 19 responses (40.43%) noted they have ordered films through the online order process with FamilySearch   while 28 responses (59.57%) indicated they have not ordered any films through the online process with FamilySearch.

I am actually surprised at the rather high number of “Yes” responses indicating individuals have ordered microfilms through the online process with FamilySearch for their research.  I was actually thinking that maybe even fewer individuals might have ordered films than what the results show.  Microfilms are still very important and if you realize data is not available online but is available on films, then you order the film to move your research forward.

Do not exclude using microfilms if data is available only that way.

I am always looking for a larger response than even that which I just saw!  So come on down ——  affix your opinion as a “Yes” or “No” when so asked to the varied polls on different topics in the world of genealogy and family history research.  Your answers count.

I plan on putting up a new poll rapidly.  Come back for that one to see the new question being asked.

A big thank you to all of those that took the time to respond to this just recently closed poll.  Take a look at the results of that poll to satisfy your own curiosity.

Don’t forget to visit my Poll Archives as part of this blog.  Look for the link at the top of the homepage of the blog where it simply says “Poll Archives”.  In here you will find the statistical results of the 19 previously active polls in addition to the poll that is generally “active”.  If you were not aware of this Archive, you may want to visit to see what all the previous polls were about.
