A Special Evacuation Day

by @ 3:52 pm. Filed under Registry Ops

Today is Evacuation Day, the anniversary of the day the British withdrew from Boston in 1776. The exact date of the event was sometime in early March, not necessarily the 17th, but for other reasons the 17th seemed like a good day to have a holiday.

But the registry was open for business today and we had a flurry of activity related to the movement of our Registered Land section from their 10+ year home in the rear portion of the building to their new quarters in the old Record Hall alongside the Recorded Land counter and the Middlesex South satellite office. By close of business tomorrow, the Registered Land section should be completely moved and fully in operation in their new home. The most significant casualty of this move is the closing tables that formerly sat in the Record Hall. We hope to reposition them to the former Registered Land area in the back of the building, but it will take some time to clean that area and remove floor mounted electrical and computer drops. There will also be some changes in the way the Middlesex South satellite office operates. Because everything is online almost instantaneously, we will no longer fax receipts to customers. Customers who wish to wait for their receipts or who have ordered certified copies will pick them up at our Customer Service counter. There will undoubtedly be other changes as we tweak the design of our new recording area. We will do our best to keep you apprised.
