Information about the Historical Use of Folklore Questionnaires in Europe?

Dear Folklorists,

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a resource for me to find a decent historical overview of the use of folklore questionnaires in Europe in the 19th–20th centuries. All of the articles I can find that talk about them, only focus on singular countries, or more often on certain scholars who produced one, and I can't find any sources that give a broad overview of where they were first used, and how they spread historically through Europe. I get the sense that the oldest ones were coming out of France and England surprisingly early in the 19th century (France has one started in 1807) and that it took the rest of the continent until the 1930s to catch on, but there are too many gaps in the materials I've found and I'm liable to put my foot in my mouth in the article I'm writing.

Thanks in advance for any aid you can provide.

Yours sincerely,
