Vault Vednesday: Vednesday Class Picks

2010 NGS Family History ConferenceIn today’s edition of Vault Vednesday I’ll talk about Vednesday classes at the NGS Family History Conference and the reservoir at the Granite Mountain Record Vault (GMRV).

Vednesday Classes

As I’ve mentioned, after Jay Verkler’s opening keynote (including virtual vault tour!) the exhibits open at 9:30. Then at 11:00 the classes begin. NGS Conference classes are one of the best ways to improve your Genealogical Maturity.

Here are just a few of the Vednesday classes I’m considering. Check the schedule for others you might enjoy.

I’ll be in a lot of trouble if I don’t attend that last one!

And you’ll be in a lot of trouble if you fail to avail yourself of these classes!!! These are just a few of the Vednesday classes and this is just the first of four days, folks!

Hope to see you there!

The Vault Reservoir

The reservoir inside the GMRV The reservoir inside the GMRV

The Granite Mountain Record Vault has its own ample water supply. At the rear of the vault is a water storage reservoir that is continually replenished by a spring deep inside the granite mountain. In 1973 the water flow was 8,700 gallons per day. Tests showed the water to be pure enough for drinking and for processing microfilm.

Photographs show the bare rock. The reservoir area was not lined with steel as were the other areas in the vault.
