Centre
 
I have checked with the FamilySearch.org people on this situation. The answer I 
received was that not all records will be restricted to viewing at a Family 
History Center. Those restricted are because of copyright issues.
 
They also stated that ALL films have been fully digitized but not all are 
available as yet. On September 1st, all be released.
 
Hope this clarifies the issue.

Hi Folks,
 
You will probably all be aware that the LDS aare not going to be sending out 
any more microfilms to their Family History Centres as of the end of this 
month.  They say that all their records will soon be digitised so the 
microfilms are redundant.  I doubt this is precisely true and we will not be 
looking at the Tithe Applotment Books online any time soon, or indeed many 
other records currently available on microfilm.  Luckily, some of the most 
useful documents for County Tyrone research are already held in microfilm 
format in Derry Family History Centre.
 
These are the films that I have paid to be held permanently at the Family 
History Centre in Derry. The Abercorn Papers are a detailed set of land and 
rent records dating back beyond the Griffiths Valuation and the Tithe 
Applotment Books well back into the 18thCentury. As such, they are invaluable 
to genealogists. As well as names and maps, they sometimes contain margin notes 
written by Abercorn’s agents which are of immense genealogical value such as 
how people are related to each other.
 
Lord Abercorn held land in both Donegal and Tyrone. I am sure that in the past, 
the FHS website included the names of townlands covered by each microfilm but 
this is certainly not the case now. This means one has to make do with the 
descriptions below which are based on manors. There is no easy reference source 
to indicate which townlands are in which manors that I know of at this time.
