There is an article about the changes the LDS FHC website at
It describes the items that the LDS plans to INDEX (!!) and put on line.
The project is apparently pretty close to getting started.
They emphasize that the website will be so user friendly that even genealogy
newbies will find it easy to navigate through it.
I would like to comment that even though they are planning to digitize a lot
of records I have the impression that it will not fe foreign records. It
will only include records in the US -- at least at first.
So those of us who need to use the films they have for ancestors from the
old Austrian Imperial lands are still going to have to do our homework and get
films to view at our local FHCs.
