Cases should help, but you may have to use the levelspec setting.

Cases[{e1, e2, ...}, pattern] gives a list of the ei that match the
Cases[{e1, ...}, pattern -> rhs] or Cases[{e1, ...}, pattern :>  
rhs] gives a list of the values of rhs corresponding to the ei that  
match the pattern.
Cases[expr, pattern, levelspec] gives a list of all parts of expr  
on levels specified by levelspec which match the pattern.
