It doesn't sound like you have researched any of the church records.
They are available to you in NEW Jersey. It will cost you about $5.
CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth
village is paramount because records are organized by village not
nationally, so it is not possible to search on a national basis. It
is also necessary to know the religion. To locate church records for
Slovakia, knowing the village/town name, go to the LDS web site:
LDS has Greek Catholic parish registers of births, marriages and
deaths for Niná Rybnica, Slovakia, formerly Alsó-Ribnyicza (or
Alsóhalas), Ung, Hungary. Includes affiliated towns of Komárovce,
Slovakia, formerly Szobránc-Komoróc, Ung, Hungary and Sobrance,
Slovakia, formerly Szobránc, Ung, Hungary.

In Nizna Rybica, there is ONE street and it is about ONE mile long.
If you have gone that far and are into wine, there are wineries that
could be visited at Tibava and Orechova. Michalovce is worth a day,
unless you tie in with the cousins that you have found there and
