Notice biographique / histoire administrative
Rabbi Colton was the primary mohel (ritual circumciser) for Montreal and the surrounding area during the late 1910s to the early 1950s. His handwritten registration books thus provide a key to locating birth and other vital records recorded in greater detail in civil archives.
Histoire de la conservation
The collection was donated by Annette Colton and Fay (Colton) Magid, daughter-in-law and daughter of Rabbi Colton. The initial contact was made through the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal. Copies of the books have been made by the society prior to donation.
