      During the first quarter of 2003 the ADAH Government Records Division has
      been busily cataloging and updating numerous government records series to
      make them more accessible.

      Before cataloging series, agencies have to be documented. For that reason
      the following gubernatorial and agency histories were created: Governor
      (1999-2003 : Siegelman). Gubernatorial history record, with all of the
      others being agency histories -- United States. District of Alabama. Alabama
      Liquefied Petroleum Gas Board. Board of Dental Scholarship Awards, Board of
      Medical Scholarship Awards, Board of Optometric Scholarship Awards, Child
      Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board, Board of Athletic Trainers. Agency
      history record, State Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Board of Examiners
      for Dietetics/Nutrition Practice, Board of Dental Examiners, Regional
      Planning and Development Commissions, and Foreign Trade Relations

      The number one priority for cataloging has been the records of Alabama's
      immediate past Governor, Don Siegelman. The series cataloged from January to
      March include Governor (1999-2003 : Siegelman) Administrative files of the
      Office of Constituent Affairs, 1999-2003, one hundred eleven (111) cubic
