Volume Low, Activity High at the Registry

While the volume of documents at the Registry has remained fairly low (652 Documents recorded on Tuesday), activity at the Registry has been high. Tuesday the Registry hosted two conferences in the Commonwealth Room. The First American Title Company gave a presentation on "Tracking the Missing Discharge" which was well attended by forty people. Also, the Registry hosted a users group meeting for registries using the ACS 20/20 Software. This meeting focused on future systems, upgrades to current systems, and a demonstration of our Queuing system.

Finally, the Worcester Registry of Deeds would like to wish a Happy 60th Birthday to John Harvell of ACS.
