My 5th great grandfather was supposed to have given aide, or was a guardian to the Natick Indians in the mid 1700s. Can you tell me where the records he kept might be?
I have spent a great deal of time with the Indian volumes of the Massachusetts Archives Collection. These scrapbooks of documents were prepared in the late 19th century with documents dating back into the 1620's to the 1780's. Part of this collection is indexed online, however the images still need to be consulted on microfilm at the Mass. State Archives. I am delighted to tell you that the index does include all the Indian volumes from the early 1600s through 1775. The following link will take you to the search page for these records - http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ArchivesSearch/RevolutionarySearch.aspx
