Re: Decyphering a town name

There is a town in the Jewish Communities Database called Sverzhen Novyy. And if there is a New one, there should be an old one as well, nearby. But in any case, the 'w' in Polish sounds like a 'v' in English or Russian, and this seems like a good possibility. 732 Jews in 1897 and in Minsk gubernia as you requested.
