Here at the Tennessee State Library and Archives we microfilm not
only our own material, but that of the counties--onsite--and other
institutions. (Cemetery records for example.) We don't charge for
the service, but we do keep a copy of the microfilm for the
library's use.  I suggest that the public institution mentioned
contact the New York State Library and ask them if they have a
similar policy. If nothing else, they should be able to recommend a
reputable service.
