The FamilySearch.com (Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah) was able for a brief time to scan a copy of a requested document, info from microfilm, book, record, CD, vital record, deed, etc. into digital format (JPG or PDF) and attach to your email address to be sent to you. By mid-2015 they have stopped (discontinued) that service. However, the FamilySearch Support department will be able to help you with any questions you may have about getting copies. The phone number is: 1-866-406-1830.
Start your search at the online FamilySearch.com. Fill in about the person you are searching. If something is located, make note of any and all film and file numbers. Use the Photo Duplication Services site which provide the details.
A reminder, this is for anything the Family History Library has, whether it was originally from another country, not just in the United States.
A reminder, to see if there is a local Family History Center (FHC) in your community. Many of these records they already have on hand and can make copies (for a small fee) for you. Other items can be requested from the headquarters in Salt Lake City and then sent to the local FHC.
