Wyandot History: A Guide to Original Sources and Current Scholarship

" a non-commercial educational site dedicated to providing access to original source materials--journals, diaries, ledger books, correspondence, postal history, census records, legal documents, treaties, maps, photographs, drawings and material culture--associated with the Wyandot Nation. While the emphasis is presently on the nineteenth century Wyandot experience in Michigan, Ohio and Kansas, once fully functional the site will expand to include both earlier and later materials of this Iroquoian First Nation of the Great Lakes region.

Content is provided by a community of scholars, archivists, genealogists, historians and other interested individuals based upon the principle of open access for the purposes of promoting and enhancing scholarly inquiry into the history of First Nations."
