The Index to the Catholic Directories for the United States with Appended Countries, 1817, 1822, 1833- provides further information and navigational assistance.
Revised edition, 2017-2020; 1,100 guide entries, 5 volumes. Through repository-based entries, Marquette's Native Guide provides referrals to records at other repositories and extensive illumination of its Native America collections. The guide entries include contact information and brief descriptions of each repository's targeted records, and for the Catholic organizations, chronologies are included that identify their past involvement with numerous Native American and Catholic groups (e.g. dioceses, priests, women religious). The chronologies, some of which are extensive, provide essential pathways for identifying and navigating diverse topics within the Native America collections, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records. See the selected list of Native Guide entries for suggested student class paper topics that use the Native America collections, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records, in tandem with the Native Guide.
