We understand that it may be difficult to visit our library to access some of the information we are now showing in the searchable indexes. The AFGS has a number of microfilms of vital records including Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire. We also own the Drouin Microfilm Collection of the Canada records from 1606 – 1940.

The Film Room Copy Service will provide copies of birth, marriage or death records contained on one of the microfilms. This service is available to AFGS members and non-members alike, with members receiving a discount price.

To order copies of vital or Drouin records from our microfilm records and view prices, please use our online form at the bottom of the page, or download the form to order through the mail. Note:  It is NOT to request research. Research requests may be made here.
