None How to define Am241 with all possible alpha decay?

I am playing with a simulation of neutron spectrum of Am241-Be neutron source.I got instruction how to define Am241 in my PhysicsList like the following :

// Define Am241

void DecayPhysicsList::ConstructSource() {

  G4ParticleTable* particleTable = G4ParticleTable::GetParticleTable();
  G4ParticleDefinition* particle;   

  // Am 241
  particle = particleTable->GetIon(95,241,0.0);

  G4VDecayChannel* channel = new G4AlphaDecayChannel(2,particle,1.,5.5,0);
  G4DecayTable* table=new G4DecayTable();

I found detailed alpha decay information of Am241 in data/RadioactiveDecay, Who can tell me how to access the data directly instead of defining G4AlphaDecayChannel to DecayTable?

Any useful help or suggestion is greatly appreciated.
