The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents 1610 to 1791 This site contains the entire English translation of the The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents, originally compiled and edited by Reuben Gold Thwaites and published by The Burrows BrothersCompany, Cleveland, throughout the latter part of the nineteenth century. Each file represents the total English contents of a single published volume. The original work has facing pages in the original French, Latin or Italian, depending on the author.
The volumes on this site were not professionally scanned and proof read so if you are using them for publication purposes it is best to recheck them against the original volumes as there are some errors in them. Alexander Street Press does have a full set of the Jesuit Relations properly proofread for scholarly use in their electronic resource: Early Encounters in North America: Peoples, Cultures and the Environment. This is a subscription based library. Alexander Street Press graciously provided Volume 51 for this resource, the only volume not scanned by Mr. Metrak.A variety of recently published documents concerning this period have been recently translated into English. We have a list of these works which may be obtained through St. Mary's University Bookstore. The contact address is: firstname.lastname@example.org .
