Subject: RE: Folklore: fairy tale motifs
I just recently got a book on Scottish folk tales (from the "Scottish souvenirs" section at Edinburgh airport). That talks explicitly about folklorists having alterady categorised folk tales from across Europe by theme, much as you're trying to do.

Don't look at me as knowing anything about this. But I can give you some references out of there if you like.
