My grandmother Minnie Kaplin came from Minsk. The information I have about her is as follows:
Minnie Kaplan, born in 1879, and her husband Lazarus Kirshner settled in London, UK.. She had 5 children, one of whom was my father Alec
Minnie married in 1901 in Minsk.
Her father was Aaron Jacob Kaplan. Her brother was Isaac Kaplan who lived in New York and was hoping to arrange for his sister to come over to the US, but this never happened. There was a nephew Irving who also lived in New York. Believe she had two sisters, Rose and Sarah.
If anyone has mention of the above on their family tree I would be very happy to hear.
