Subject: Fast Search NICAP APRO & MUFON Journals/Bulletins

I thought it worth mentioning on this List a technique I've been
using during the last week or so to do very fast searches of
multiple issues of the MUFON Journal plus APRO Bulletins and
NICAP Bulletins.

I'll include some links below for ease of reference to this
material (and a few other UFO publications).

I know the existence of some of these journals online has been
mentioned on this List (although I don't recall anyone referring
to the NICAP "UFO Investigator" journals being online or the
other NICAP material shared by CUFOS), but thought the search
technique was worth highlighting. I've been very impressed by
the speed of this technique.

I wish I'd been able to do such searches earlier...

I have posted a relatively long description of the relevant
search technique (with screenshots and examples) on the
Abovetopsecret.com forum at:


The short version, however, is as follows:

(1) Step 1: Download the material you want to be able to search
(e.g. journals published by MUFON, APRO and NICAP). I've
included the main links below.

(2) Step 2: Download a free piece of software called “PDF-
XChange Viewer”. Link below.

(3) Step 3: Use the search functions in “PDF-XChange Viewer” to
search an entire directory of journals in one go. Screenshots
are included in my post on Abovetopsecret.com at the link above.

(4) Step 4 (Optional) : Make the filenames more informative
(e.g. by adding a prefix giving the name of the relevant
Journal, using a free tool such as “Bulk Rename Utility”).
