I tripped over the following site while looking for something else. Thought it might be a good resource for people interested in such things. Just click on the song title.

That is Roel 'Halewijn' van Dijk's Child Ballad Database. It used to be in a very spartanic layout at http://members.chello.nl/r.vandijk2/index.html . This old link still worked in April 2020 but seems to have gone by now. But even the new site exists for some years by now.

"Halewijn" and "Audie O.Fyle" posted most of those on USENET in 2010. This was done in two parts... as a first run, then as 'remnants' that were missed the first time. They were available for as long as a good newsserver cared to retain them...from one to 4-5 years. I can't find any place that still has them. (I think there were 4-5 thousand of them posted.)

In the link http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/ballads/
One mention is of Bruce Olson's 'website', which is now hosted here at Mudcat. You can find it at 'quick links' at the top or at:
https://mudcat.org/olson/viewpage.cfm

Many interesting and arcane items from his years of research. His Mudcat posts are still available with a search.
