I checked the manual to make sure and I also learned that isearch can 
be used to search the history which was new for me.

One always learns new things with emacs and isearch seems a quite
efficent way to search through a longer history:

   If an incremental search fails in the minibuffer, it tries searching
the minibuffer history.  *Note Minibuffer History::.  You can visualize
the minibuffer and its history as a series of "pages", with the
earliest history element on the first page and the current minibuffer
on the last page.  A forward search, `C-s', searches forward to later
pages; a reverse search, `C-r', searches backwards to earlier pages.
Like in ordinary buffer search, a failing search can wrap around, going
from the last page to the first page or vice versa.
