Thread Name: Child Ballads: US Versions
Subject: RE: Child Ballads: US Versions
I checked with the Library of Congress, Jennifer Cutting said the Carpenter Collection should be available on-line in December or early next year.

Not sure if Roud put the Carpenter collection on his song index although there are a few references. Anyone know?

I have the numbers (ballads collected) on Carpenter somewhere. This will vastly extend traditional versions mostly in England.
