The Jesuits were among the first Europeans to inhabit the area called New France. This area encompassed what is now New England and the Great Lakes region of the U.S. and Canada. The Jesuits kept detailed records of their travels and explorations among the Indians. Their writings from 1610-1791 provide a rich source of material for studies in anthropology, history, religion, geography, and ethnology. This 73 volume set contains the original French, Latin, and Italian texts plus English translations, notes, and an exhaustive analytical index. Ruben Thwaites (Secretary of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin) wrote the general introduction to the collection and provides a summary of the work of the Jesuits. The full Thwaites set is reproduced in this collection.
Finding Aids: Volumes 72 and 73 on microfiche contain an analytical index to the series.
