My JABLOW Family from Minsk #belarus #names

Hello,
All my mother's family adopted the name JABLOW when they came to the U.S., but I can't find records for them in Minsk. Does anyone have any idea what their name in Minsk might have been?
Many thanks for your help.

The Jablow Family in my tree came from Strassburg, Germany (at the time). Strassburg is right on the border with Poland and flip-flopped country many times. Their original name was Jablonowski. You could try that name.

Dale,

A soundex search at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus/
for surname JABLOW finds this surname in Minsk records, along with other possibilities:  YAVELOV

I see a December 1903 Ellis Island passenger manifest for Ender JABLOW from Minsk.  If you look at the manifest you will see the name JABLOW was written over a crossed out surname that looks like GZABLO,  Although, I'm not quite certain about the first letter being "G" or something else?
