Custodial history

Scope and content


This is the archive of Joffe Marks and his family ( Jaffee/Bloom/Pinn Families) tracking his story as an immigrant during the late nineteenth century as he made his way from Port Elizabeth to the gold mines in the Transvaal ; and the founding of first modern mills in the Transvaal which he built and managed for many decades until his death in 1955.
Through his sponsorship, his brother and wife and two children left Lithuania and came to South Africa in 1913. Their families subsequently worked in the mills in Newtown once they had finished school. The next generation also worked in the mills.
No archive is complete and family members are encouraged to contact the administrators if they wish to add anything to this archive.

I wish to thank the Kaplan Centre and the University of Cape Town archival staff who have made this digital archive possible.
