This is a wonderful find. Thank-you Danielle!
Danielle, could you please say more about this collection? I'm not familiar with it. Merci!
hi Jillaine,

Jesuit missionnaries in the colony wrote reports pretty much each year that were published in France, about their work, the country, events and people.  They are actually a fairly major source for early days of the colony, you see them cited mostly as ''the Jesuit Relations'' or ''the Relations'', one does have to plow through a lot to find what one wants sometimes, but this publication of them includes an index of names that refer to the entries by year then original page.  It reproduces the original texts.
Thanks, Danielle. Which colonies?
hehehe Jillaine, New France in those days consisted of Canada, Acadie and Pays d'en Haut, and they mention all of them, the last most often referred to as the various missions, Huron, Outawais,,,,

Thank you Danielle, this is excellent information.  I quickly came across some early Acadian missionaries.  And so many native names from the Huron and Algonquin, Iroquois, etc.  I can already think of one Michigan family who was intertwined with Natives where this could be helpful.
