Did you know that that name is Greek. My family is fromm the Island of Kalamata in Greece. Our original family name was Michaelis, it was changed to Michas by my Grandfather when he immigrated at the turn of the century. Germany is noted for having many
Greeks,your family may be tracable to Kalamata or some other region in Greece. Hope this helped some.-Christopher Michas
