Mass add with search filters

I currently have a custom object called Mailing List and a child custom object called List Members (Contact). The child object gets its list members via a lookup field that accesses the Contact object. This method only allows me to add one record at a time, which is too time consuming for managing a mailing list.


What I'm hoping to do is build a Visualforce page that searches the Contact object with filters, so I can do something like - state a Field from a picklist (eg. Country), an Operator from a picklist (eg. equals) and a Value (eg. Australia) and all contacts that live in Australia are returned and I can add them to my mailing list.


Does this sound like the best way to go about it? And can anyone direct me to some useful information on how I'd build the filter fucntionality?
