Franco Don Calo

Franco Don Calo (of an old Roman Jewish family claiming descent of Rabbi Kalonymous* the sage) speaking at a Shealtiel family reunion on the common Davidic ancestry of the two families.

*Legend has it that a member of the family -originating in Italy and Provence-was invited to settle in Germany by Charlemagne in 887 and is considered the progenitor of a large part of Ashkenazic Jewry see more here

A member of this family, Eugenio Calo is considered a national hero in Italy.

Just curious- and unrelated:

My paternal lineage comes from a family in pre-unification Sienna: the surname is Abramo di Melchizzedek. Know anything about them? (My current surname, Congedo, comes about from our story of how this section of the family fled Sienna to Firenze). I haven't yet found this name (A'd'Melch...) in any genealogy lists.

Thank you kindly for your time,
Isaac Congedo

I think everything posted was actually very logical. However, what about this?

suppose you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean "Franco Don Calo" is a little vanilla. You ought to look at
Yahoo's home page and note how they create news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you've written.
Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.

The most impoгtant troubles I've with abx treatment method with strep are: one. Docs normally give without culturing two. Abx are held hostage by docs wanting to make a buck. My family does not have insurance, so when we've got
