About Microfiche

Microfiche are 4"x6" scanned pictures of the multiple pages of a periodical. They can be read by viewing on microfiche readers. Readers are inexpensive and reliable (I picked mine up at an auction for $15). One of the best ways to get a reader is to do a search on eBay for "fiche" and the readers are often in the "computers and office equipment" category and I've seen many with a modest starting price of less than $25. This is a great way to do research in the comfort of your own home. Periodicals, genealogical data and detailed automobile and motorcycle information often can be purchased most economically and with the least consumption of valuable space by use of microfiche, which is why it is used by libraries.

Microfiche can also be taken to a library or a family history center to be read. Those genealogical centers and libraries often have microfiche reader printers so prints can be made if you want a paper copy.
