As of September 23, 2016 the old records were locked down to copy over to the new system which will went live October 3, 2016.  During the period of September 23rd - October 3rd, 2016 these records were manually created in their respective DNS sections. All functions of the data base will remain working, minus the information created during this gap.  All records after October 3rd are being entered into the new data records system.
