Search Tips - Lists
Did you know your web browser has a built in search feature that will allow you to search a web page?

AAIR Site Search
Site Search is a great place to start. The AAIR Site Search page (look for the icon in the topline menu) is indexed by Google. All the static lists (tables) are indexed. Using Site Search can get you to the proper table for your more detailed browser search. When using Site Search, if you want to search on an exact search term then place quotes around your term. i.e. Searching on John Doe returns all occurrences of both John and Doe so you get John Smith as well as John Doe. Searching on "John Doe" with quotes returns only John Doe responses.
