At the Family History Library -- Post 346 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

It's Wednesday, and I'm at the Family History Library today in Salt Lake City doing research, so blogging will be sporadic today.  To get the morning started, here is a photograph from the Family History Library from past visits:

There is so much information stored in this one aisle, and the other 30 or so aisles just like it at the Family History Library!  Each drawer holds about 30-40 microfilm boxes, all labeled, and catalogued on FamilySearch.  What a treasure trove!

Here is a view of one of the Information Desks at the FHL, which (I think) recently has been removed:

Finally, the microfilm reader/scanners located on every floor.  You put your film in the reader (on the left), it shows up on the computer screen, and you save the images to your flash drive.

I failed to get a picture last year of my favorite volunteer, Edith, who is 97 years old, and as sharp as a tack helping researchers make the system work for them.  I hope she's there this year, and I remember to get a photo of her.
