The Family History Library will provide photocopies if there is no digital image online.

I recently found this record:

Benjamin Frnaklin Ida Hull marriage

There is no digital image available online,  but this index ncludes the GS Film number (551111) and Reference ID (p. 152).

My next step is to search the card catalog by fiche or film number and identify the title of the series and the specific volume or volumes on this film number.

Search by film number2

Here is the information for the actual film.  Notice there are three volumes on the roll.  I need a July 12 1910 record, which might be on p. 152 , but could be in  vol. 39 or 40.  I hope they will be willing to check each.

Marriage Bonds v. 38-40

This FamilySearch.org blog  explains the procedure and provides a link to the form to use to make the request.

After I filled out the form, a confirmation screen appeared, showing me what I ordered.

I’ll let you know how long it takes to arrive.   They will send it to me through email.
