Georgina Jaffee and Jaffee Family Collection

  • 2014-

Note from Georgina Jaffee compiler and donor:

Much has been done to try and document the immediate family of Joffe Marks, many members from some of the next generations have been left out. It is possible for everyone to add to this archive so as to make it more complete and you can contact the administrators to do this. No archive is ever complete and I hope this will be seen as something which is not the project of one person but something which belongs to all of us and therefore it can be added to and shared for further generations.

I also wish to than the Kaplan Centre at the University of Cape Town and the SAJMarchive staff for all the assistance in getting this archive on-line.

Georgina Jaffee Pinn Family Series

in the early 1880’s a Lithuanian emigrant called Lazar Pinn, arrived on the shores of Cape Town. A watchmaker by trade, he set up shop, repairing watches and barometers from his hotel room. In 1893 after one or two disasters he opened L. Pinn and Co. at 45 Adderley Street, Cape Town. The company flourished and traded from these premises for 94 years, before moving head office to 30 St George’s Mall.
