Microfilm Duplication

Duplicates of microfilm owned by the MdHS are available for purchase for personal use, if MdHS owns the copyright. This includes most microfilm in the manuscript collections except those produced commercially, such as those available as part of University Publications of America’s Records of Antebellum Southern Plantations. Some church registers and newspapers are available as well. Please e-mail library_dept@mdhs.org to confirm that the microfilm you want is available for duplication before ordering.


Cost is $55/reel with a $35 processing fee. Payments must be made in advance. We accept checks payable to the Maryland Historical Society, or money order, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.



Send your order, specifying which reels you want and the address to which you want your microfilm sent, along with payment to:

Microfilm duplication takes a minimum of two weeks.
