DNA extraction from formalin-fixed material

Hi everyone, we have got a small technical problem: we have received some 
tumor samples fixed in formalin and subsequently stored in 70% EtOH (N.B. they 
have NOT been embedded in paraffin). We would like to isolate DNA from these 
samples. Does anyone have a good protocol?

Thanks in advance!!
