How to find free viewable films:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog

enter in place: name of town you are searching documents for, i.e. Kaiserslautern

choose: civil registration; Zivilstandsregister 1797-1961

Now you can choose all the films with the camera-logo and view them on your computer

Else you can try other items such as church-records etc.
