Family History Library being evacuated now

Ol' Myrt here has just received two cell phone calls from researchers at the the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah who report the building is being evacuated. The alarm sounding in the background was readily apparent. At the time of the first cell phone call, Ol' Myrt here was on a conference call on my other line with someone at the Library. The alarms interrupted, and our virtual meeting was cut short.

I've contacted the local television station to determine the cause, but the information has only come to their attention by my phone call.

I will not speculate as to the cause. However, if you are in Salt Lake City for research at the Family History Library, you might want to rethink your plans today, and watch for updates on the local news.

Ol' Myrt here will keep you informed.

Happy family tree climbing!
