    Adapters are made for this purpose. Take a look on eBay.

    Welcome to ePHOTOzine Smile

    thewilliam suggests eBay which is a good option for this kind of item. There are three levels, basic ones which are anything from about 10, more advanced focus confirm versions which are 15 upwards (watch out - both these two don't allow infinity focus so may have macro in the description) and the third is a version with a glass element that will focus on infinity, but may degrade quality.
    You will lose all form of automation on all models.

    This is as much as you need to know: FD mount - Wikipedia
    Your old lens will not be fully functional on your new camera, image quality will suffer as well. Time to sell them or to keep them with the film camera - if you wish.
