Marriages between Native Americans and Europeans in the 1600s

Hello,

My ancestors lived in New England from the early 1600s through the late 1700s. I recently read that marriages between Native Americans and early European settlers were "common" and "encouraged" in this area, which led me to believe it could be possible that I have Native American ancestry. I also read that these marriages are recorded somewhere.

Does anyone know where I could find records of early marriages that record whether one of the participants was Native American (ideally online)? I am hoping to find a list or something, so that I could then compare the names of the couples to those in my family tree.

Thanks!
