Minsk Town - Kaplan Family Inn/Brewery #belarus


Not sure about your query, but I have Kaplan in my tree and I believe there were from Minsk or the next village love. One of my Mendelson ancestors married Emma Kaplan and lived in Brooklyn New York.

There is a story in our family (Charles Kaplan and his 1st cousin Ida Arbit) that back in Minsk 1890s or early 1900s, our family owned an Inn with an onsite brewery. Supposedly it was in a small town outside of Minsk called Fanyapol. I am quite sure the spelling is wrong. Any suggestions on the correct name of the town, and whether there would be any information or photos? I did not find a Belarus SIG discussion group, but am happy to repost if someone has a link. Thank you.
