Re: Klimscheffskij from Suwalki #names

I have never come across this name before in Suwalki. There were others in Suwalki whose names originate from elsewhere e.g. names beginning with Plock coming from that town. Allegedly my Brin/Brunn/Braun family from Vishtinetz may have come from Brno/Brunn in Moravia originally. 

In Suwalki you are more likely to find local place names used as surnames e.g. Serwianski after lake Serwy (this is my father's family)
