For nearly $100 aust. for a couple of names seems a bit much!

You are welcome to visit the Godfrey Library to try out the NEHGS
online resources. The library subscribes to this service for inside
the library building only.
The Godfrey does have more online genealogy resources (documents;
books; census etc.) available from your own home 24/7 then any other
library in the country. More resources for New England research and
everywhere else. Anyone can sign up for a library card.
Stop by and give it a try.
