Re: Kalonymus

It was not a common name, and it was certainly chosen because an ancestor had that name, and so further back. So I would say that it is indeed likely that he descended from that famous family, but you would had to trace your line back close to a thousand years to prove it,which is almost impossible (unless somewhere along the way you found someone had a prepared family tree).

My gggrandfather was Kalman SHMULEVITZ from Panevezys, Lithuanai, and many relatives were named for him.
