Subject: Finding People by Name 
 
Picking up on the NGS/CIG meeting earlier this month, there were some 
URLs you can use to search for people with a surname of interest, 
even find an old boy/girlfriend, roomate, classmate, etc. Not 
included below are the search engines that could theoretically be 
used to search on a surname, and then there is Veronica, Gopher, 
Archie and the MIT server (below) that scans the usenet email headers 
for a surname.
