Updated Record List

By Al Myers

The USAWA Record List has just been updated on the website.  Everything is current in the list at this point. I’ve added the Excel File as well, available for download.  This will allow sort features for those who prefer to use Excel.  From now on I will include both the PDF and Excel file of the Record List on the website.
