Just to give an example of a successful listserv archive search that I
once did (on a different listserv archive for genealogy, called
roots-l), please examine the following, which returned a full-text of
all the articles posted since 1988 to the roots-l listserv that
contained the keyword COFFIN (i.e. a family name I was researching).
Note that you don't have to know the numbers of the articles if you
instruct the listserv to print all.
// job echo = no
database search dd=rules
//rules dd *
search COFFIN in roots-l since 88/01/01
print all
Good luck!
