Jesuit Relations


The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents. Travels and Explorations of the Jesuit Missionaries in New France - 1610-1791. The Original French, Latin and Italian Texts, with English Translations and Notes; Illustrated by Portraits, Maps and Facsimiles.  Edited by Ruben Gold Thwaites, secretary of the Wisconsin Historical Society. 73 Volumes, approximately 21,000 pages. 1896. Burrows Brothers. Cleveland, Ohio.   2 CD-ROM set. 


Undoubtedly the best and only primary resource for information concerning early Canada, its settlers and Native peoples. This series was originally published in France in the 1600's in a serialized version and became wildly popular in France. Technically, each issue was an annual report sent by the Jesuit Missionaries to the mother house in Paris describing the state of affairs in Canada (New France). Each issue contained voluminous amounts of information about the early settlers and Native peoples (Iroquois, Huron etc)  serving to chronicle the only early written record of early French Canada. 
Original copies of these "Relations" as they were called are very rare and found only in the most well endowed libraries. It was not until the late 19th that this series became more readily available thanks to Ruben G. Thwaites who translated all known issues of these "Relations" and subsequently had them published by the Burrows Company of Cleveland, Ohio. They were published in a limited edition of only 700 copies. There are only 4 publicly available copies of this series in Rhode Island [University of Rhode Island, Providence College, Brown University (which also has original editions!) and the American French Genealogical Society].

Each volume contains the original text (written in Latin, Italian or French) with an English translation appearing on the opposite page. Each volume contains a series of notes which put much of the matter in historical context and are truly worthy of a book in itself. Also included in each volume is a bibliography for use in further research. Volumes 72 and 73 - the Indexes are extensive in scope and are included on each CD of this set.

Each volume is fully text searchable with the original text in the foreground. Please keep in mind that current OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software is not perfect. For best results use the indexes in Volumes 72 and 73 as well as the Adobe Search function.

French-Canadian and Acadian Genealogical Review. Volumes 1-9 as issued.  Edited by Roland Auger.  see description below. ( see requirements )

Complete set of this long out of print series written by a variety of authors well versed in French-Canadian and Acadian genealogists. This series was written entirely in English for the American and English-Canadian speaking audiences. Much useful genealogical information can be found in this series.


Acadian Genealogy and Notes by Placide Gaudet. 372 pages.1905. Ottawa.  ( see requirements ) $19.95

Placide Gaudet, undoubtedly the first widely-accepted expert in Acadian genealogy, presented his first genealogical work for publication in 1905 in the Canadian Archives annual report. Employed by the Public Archives of Canada, Gaudet devoted much time to gathering information about the Acadians. Information in this book has been gathered from public and private sources in Canada, the United States, France, and Britain. Many church and notarial records were either not found, damaged or incomplete. Nevertheless Gaudet compiled genealogies for more than 100 Acadian families. He had all good intentions of publishing a comprehensive "Tanguay-like" dictionary for the Acadian race. This publication never saw the light of day. Like many Acadian genealogical compilations, they are subject to conjecture, supposition and much deductive reasoning. In this fine example of scholarship, Gaudet does whet our appetite with the genealogies of 3 families: Bourgeois , Lanoue and Belliveau . In addition, there are substantial sections devoted to Acadians both in Canada and in the deported areas of the world.

Handbook of Indians of Canada Published as an appendix to the Tenth Report of the Geographic Board of Canada, Sessional Paper No. 21a. 632 pages, 1912. ISBN: 1-58211-054-9. Description below. $29.95

During the early exploration and settlement of North America, multitudes of Indian tribes were encountered, having diverse customs and languages. Lack of knowledge of the aborigines and of their languages led to many curious errors on the part of the early explorers and settlers: names were applied to the Indians that had no relation whatever to their aboriginal names; sometimes nicknames were bestowed, owning perhaps to personal characteristics, fancied or real… Consequently, in the literature relating to the American Indians, thousands of such names are recorded the significance and application of which are to be understood only after much study.

This handbook is an outgrowth of the need for a comprehensive work on the subject of Canadian Indians. Only tribes residing wholly, or in part, in Canada are treated in this publication. Its aim is to give a brief description of every linguistic stock, confederacy, tribe, sub tribe or tribal division, and settlement known to history or even to tradition, as well as the origin and derivation of every name treated whenever such is known, and to records under each every form of the name and every other appellation that could be learned. These synonyms, in alphabetic order, are assembled as cross-references in Appendix III.

Under the tribal description one finds a brief account of the ethnic relations of the tribe, its history, its location at various periods, statistics of population, etc., are included. Accompanying each synonym (the earliest known date always being given) a reference to the authority is noted, and these references form practically a bibliography of the tribe for those who desire to pursue the subject further.
