The link quoted above goes to the first page of the first version.
Increment the 95 in the URL to 96 for the next page, and so on.

I'm intrigued by the episode quoted by Malcolm Douglas from Child "In both versions, her body is found by her lover, who takes three locks of her yellow hair with which to string his harp". As in the British versions the instrument then identifies the sister as the murderer and stops the lover marrying her, but it makes an even stronger story where it's the lover himself who has found the corpse and strung the harp.
