Using Archive Search Engine.


The Glamorgan Mailing List archives are very useful in several ways.

  • You are able to Search the archives for a given Surname, which makes it easy to find who has researched your surname earlier. Be warned though if the message is an old one that the subscriber may have changed their email account. Placing your Research Interests on the List should alert that person.
  • You are able to search for a given Location or Topic, which makes it easy to see what has been discussed previously.
  • You can Browse the archives to see if messages are reaching the List and if yours is shown, when you are concerned that you haven't seen your posting.

Here is an example.

Don't forget spelling. I know this sounds obvious, but please bear in mind that most search engines will only give hits on EXACT matches.

You will find the Glamorgan List Archives here.
