The Minovitz Surname Project

Known name changes are: Miner, Minoff, Menoff, Minor, Minov, Minow, Minot, Minott, Minton, Mann, Martin, Friedman. The belief is that all descend from residents of the former Rechitsa district in Byelorussia which includes towns such as Kalinkovichi, Narovlya, Gorval, Brahin, Khoynicki (Chvanik), or the adjoining district of Mazyr. It is believed the families originally came from northwestern Ukraine towns before surnames were required.
