Exactly; those microfiche catalogs have not been updated for a very long 

The Family History Library catalog at www.familysearch.org proved to be 
uncooperative this morning.  I was able to a search on the catalog 
search at the beta site.  As an example these are the results that came 
up on the beta search for Scotland  Banff  Keith  Church history:
