In regard to the posting about Klinghoffer, I believe that the following
should be considered:
The Klinghoffer family was in Drohobycz (as well as nearby Boryslaw) for
many generations. The name itself refers to a gorge or ravine/farm or where
the person may have been the arrendar, i.e., the leaseholder or manager of
Klimkowce, the village, may indeed have been where the original farm was
located. As I don't know what the definition of Klimkowce may be, I can't
say that Klinghoffer was derived >from it.
In regard to Klimkowce not being close to Drohobycz, my family came to
Drohobycz >from Krakow. Therefore, it was not unusual for families to come
from places far removed or not close to Drohobycz. Drohobycz had manythings going for it economically >from earliest times and tended to attract
people >from other places whether close by or further away.
