[Air-l] usenet historiography question

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to trace the development of a FAQ on MPEG that circulated on
usenet starting in 1994.  I've done a search on google groups but I'm
wondering if there is a more powerful or definitive tool.  Google seems
pretty hit or miss as I can find some stuff from that period, but there are
other things from 1994 that I know were there then that I can't find now.

I'd appreciate suggestions from anyone who's doing usenet history.

Thanks.

--Jonathan
