Where are the digitized records on FamilySearch.org?

Summary

On June 26, 2017, FamilySearch announced the next phase of its digital fulfillment strategy which included discontinuing its microfilm rental service (See Digital Records Access Replacing Microfilm) for digital access.  It said that over half of its vast 2.4 million rolls of microfilm were now digitally available for free online.  The question is, where?  The answer is first in the FamilySearch Catalog, and then in the Historic Collections.  FamilySearch is digitizing 1,500 microfilms per day and another 150,000 images from digital cameras in the field. Those images are being published right into the Catalog.
