Hello
Kalwaria (after 1890 called Kalwaria Zebrzydowska)  lost its town privileges in 1896, so it could not effect your ancestors emigration in 1892. 
Town privilleges meant: self administration, possibility to organize markets and craftsman guilds and others.
I cannot tell what it meant in practice to the Jews.
See the brief article about the Kalwaria Zebrzydowska history
