FamilySearch Microfilm Loan at the Hayes Presidential Library

We are pleased to be a partner with the Genealogical Society of Utah. You able to order microfilm from FamilySearch in Salt Lake City and have it sent here for viewing. As an Affiliate Library, we are delighted because, along with the internet, this opens up the whole world of research tools to our patrons. You can order such things as church or civil records from Waldmohr, Germany, deed records from Lehigh County, Pennsylvania or a Birchard family history.

The fee is set by FamilySearch and is detailed on this web page:

Basically it is under $10.00 per roll of microfilm for 60 days usage. For an additional fee per roll, you can order a film and it will stay here indefinitely.


The Family History Library holds over 2 million rolls of microfilmed records, 400,000 microfiche, and 300,000 books – much of this is available through this loan program. This immense collection of genealogical material covers most of the world, allowing researchers to search original records from countries as far as the Netherlands, Hungary, Chile, and China, although the emphasis is on Great Britain, Canada, Europe, and America. The Library's United States holdings include records from thousands of county courthouses and state and regional archives.
