Chicago History Museum
Unfortunately, this site has no search tool regarding their wonderful collections of documents on New France. However, on the spot, the best reference is by far their typewritten manuscript "Calendar of Manuscripts in the Archives of the Chicago Historical Society, B, compiled by the Dominion Archivist". Also to consult: "Report concerning Canadian Archives for the year 1905, Vol. 1, Ottawa, 1906, Sessional Paper No. 18." and Honorius Provost, « Inventaire des documents concernant l’histoire du Canada conservés aux Archives de Chicago », Revue d'histoire de l'Amérique française, Vol. 4, No. 2 (1950), pp. 294-302; Vol. 4, No. 3, (1950), pp. 453-458 and Vol. 4, No. 4 (1951), pp. 591-600.
