Description

This list of gifts presented at the wedding of Ezekiel Hart in 1794 forms part of the Hart Family papers. It contains the names of the oldest Jewish families in Quebec, including the Levys and the Judahs, who were related to the Harts. The Hart Family papers give information on family and business activities over the period 1760 to 1843. The earliest documents concern Aaron and Ezekiel Hart, who settled in Trois-Rivières in 1760 and established a name for themselves in business and politics.
