Perhaps you are not aware that everything we say here is archived in a
searchable database on http://www.google.com and the terms you put in for
a query, be they names, places, or other terms, are highlighted in the
displayed results. You can also qualify the search to look for postings
by a specific user. In addition, the soc.genealogy.ireland postings are
mirrored to the GENIRE-L list, which is also archived online.
