During the early 1600s, Jesuit missionaries arrived in New France (modern-day eastern North America) to convert Indians to the Roman Catholic faith. Beginning in 1632, the Jesuits began to publish yearly accounts of their activities in New France. These accounts became known as the ''Jesuit Relations''. The ''Jesuit Relations'' provided Europeans interested in settling in North America with information on life in the New World. These writings also have provided subsequent historians with an abundance of information on the Jesuits' experiences in New France. In addition, the ''Jesuit Relations'' also give modern researchers  some of the most detailed and earliest written accounts of the Indian people who resided in modern-day Ohio.
