Are there any methods to find materials in terms of the assigned magnetic point group?

For example, I know the magnetic point groups $6'mm'$ and $6'22'$, and I want to find the corresponding antiferromagnetic materials. How can I do this?

Finally, I figured out how to arrive at that. The way I found is using the MAGNDATA database.

Just by choosing the parent space group, for example, hexagonal, you can obtain many structures, listed in a table. At the last line of that table, you can find the corresponding MPG, for example, $6'mm'$. Note that there are many choices you can pick rather than the parent space group to narrow the content of the table.
