"I have noticed on a Eurocart map that there is now a village called Kavalar at the, I belive, western shore of Lake Weissensee (about ten miles southwest of Spittal) & would like to find out more about this villages origins, since I believe it was named after our family."

most times familynames can come about the places they lived - not vice versa.
the name Kavalar has slavic (slovenian)orgin and comes about occupation not a place:
slovenian >
kovalo, nakovalo = anvil (Amboß in german)
kovati = forge (schmieden in german)
Kovac = Smith (Schmid in german)
name-variants are Schmied, Schmidt, Kobau, Kovac and so on.

WHERE should this place called Kavalar be?
do you have it on map? never heared for that area.

Fusine in Valromana, Tarvisio, Italy:,+...
old map:

for ancestors-research ask at diocesan-archive Klagenfurt if they have also the old files for the Kanal-valley, now Italy:
