Restricted film at the Family History Library

Q. I have been asking for a film from the LDS; they say it's restricted. Restricted to whom? Whom could I get to read it? There's no mention of restriction in the library catalog. The film is St. James Ireland No. 0962524. LDS branches here do not know.

A. It's likely that the microfilm you're seeking via your local Family History Center (FHC) has a circulation restriction. This is not a case of being restricted to specific persons — rather, it's usually a contractual restriction placed by the holder of the original records. This film will be available for use in the Family History Library (FHL) itself in Salt Lake City, however.
