I cannot find either Brogin or Bragin in my atlas ...... ???
Bragin, also spelled Brahin, was in the southeastern corner of Minsk
guberniya. According to WOWW revised edition it is at 51-47/30-16 and 88km
southwest of Homyel (Gomel). It was in Rechitsa uezd at the beginning of the
20th century and today it is in Gomel Oblast.

My FRIEDMAN family is >from Bragin and also a collateral MINOVICH family.
