This also illustrates the value of an index that can be skimmed-- I have been making one in Excel. I would not think of searching on all those words, but if you skim the whole list, possibilities start to jump out at you as you soak up the dialect and the titling rationale. I'll have the index linked where you can see it very soon, BTW.

There is a print index I hope to have a copy of soon, as well... these make it much easier to find the relationships between things.

I think this is the first I have heard on the Oliver and Scarbourough works-- please say more about these so I can include them in the biblio I am working on for the African-American Spirituals Permathread. Any chance I could get a scan of the indexes for these?

Love to have you guys helping with that permathread, too!
