WW – Finding Digital Images on FamilySearch

DearREADERS,
This WACKY Wednesday episode is about finding digital images at FamilySearch – a particularly vexing topic when:— unindexed, browsable only— is it a digital book linked in the catalog— is it a digital book found under SEARCH > Books

– there is no DGS number
And to top it all off, the film number above the actual "beginning of film" number don’t match.

Cousin Russ ran into a little issue, and wanted to explore this with the assistance of our attendees.
