I am first generation American born Kavalar, searching for original records from Weissenfels,Austria(Karnten), St. Leonard Catholic Church. This village since the big war is Fusine Valromano, Italy. Are these records in Klagenfurt, Austria or Udine, Italy. I am planning a trip to Austria in the first part of July & I would like to review the original records. I have review microfilm at the Latter Day Saints but some of the pages are missing that may be important to my research. Any assistance is appreciated.
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.

Hi Diane,
Your messages on this board are a bit old, but if you're still around, I know a whole family of Kavalar's that live in Michigan. I was married to one of them in the late 80's/Early 90's and still have contact with him.
You may already know about them, but you didn't mention finding Kavalar's in Michigan, so I thought I'd mention them.
My husband was Mark and he has 4 brothers, David, Jeff and twins, Scott and Shawn. Their father is Steve Kavalar. Their uncle is Ray Kavalar and there's a Richard J. Kavalar as well.
I regret I know nothing of their heritage or the name Kavalar, even though it was my own last name for nearly 7 years.

Thanks
Natalie Williams

Are you related to Werner & Gerhild Kavallar. I visited them at their home in 1998 & 2000. I am still trying to make a connection with therir family.

Are you working on a family tree. The earliest Kavalar that I have been able to find was a Jospeh Kavalar born about 1800 and his wife wa Apolonia Tomshe.

My father, John Kavalar was born in 1910 and just died last year. he was born in Weissenfels, Austria.

I live in the United States, in the state of Michigan.

Look forward to hearing from you.

"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.

for ancestors-research ask at diocesan-archive Klagenfurt if they have also the old files for the Kanal-valley, now Italy: http://www.kath-kirche-kaernten.at/dioezese/organisation/C25...

In my automobile atlas of Austria, I can see a place named Kavallar located near the eastern (not western) end of the Weissensee. While Kavallar is not at the shores of the lake, it is almost there.

The Weissenbach (Weissen brook) flows east to Stockenboi, and later the Drau valley.

South of Kavallar is a place called Kavallaralm, a grazing pasture in the mountains.
