Hi, all -
Does anyone have any information on the parents of Kalmen
Kaplansky, the human rights activist? All the biographical information
on him says he was born in Poland and immigrated to Canada when he was
18. I have him in my family tree because at least a half dozen other
people do, as well, yet his parents in these trees are Abraham and
Mollie KAPLINSKY from Minsk who came to the US before Kalmen was born.
I can't find anything on who his parents were and he seems to be the
only one in the family with the surname Kaplansky instead of
Kaplinsky. This is all a red flag to me, suggesting that he's not
related to me and all the others who've done the research before me
were wrong. I can't find any historical records that mention his
parents' names and he doesn't appear to be on JewishGen or Family
Search. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
