From Ohio History Central
Beginning in 1632, Jesuits in New France (modern-day Canada) began to publish yearly accounts of their activities. 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'' give modern researchers some of the most detailed and earliest written accounts of Indian people who resided in modern-day Ohio.
