Folklore students at Brigham Young University explore different genres of folklore for the purpose of the folklore archives these are divided into 14 genres: supernatural legends, non-supernatural legends, character legends, etiological legends, human condition legends, contemporary legends, beliefs, songs, personal narratives, folktales/jokes, material culture, customs, games and riddles. At this time each of these genres has its own index. The index includes a call number and a brief description of the item. The items are arranged in categories.
We are currently working on making these genre items more accessible and also providing more information about each item. As these finding aids become available, we will let you know and supply links to each aid from this site. All of the aids should be completed by the end of 2010.
