Good new for you.
Pavlovce nad Uhom records are online. http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#w=0&p=waypoint&s=waypointsOnly&c=fs%3A1554443 This link will hopefully open on the page for the online records that lists the different denominations. Click on Roman Catholic, then scroll down to Pavlovce nad Uhom, click on it to open the record files.
The 1995 Slovak Census data base says that in Pavlovce nad Uhom there lived 13 Calfa and 12 Calfova and 14 Sabovcik and 13 Sabovcikova. You difficulty will be sorting your family out from those records. The data base had no listing for Kopervasz. The surname Makuch had 52 listings in 24 locations. Of the top ten locations 7 were in districts of far eastern Slovakia. Neither of your places were listed in the top ten.

After a long absence I am returning to your group. I look forward to
learning and sharing.
The family names in my Slovak heritage are: KOPERVAS(Z), MAKUCH,
CALFA , SZABOCIK, from the villages of CIERNE POLE and PAVLOVCE nad
I was very fortunate to have met some close relatives (first cousin
once removed) on the KOPERVAS side on 2 trips to Slovakia.
Sadly,this cousin passed away 3 yrs. ago. The information and history
she shared could only get back to my great-grandmothers CALFA AND
SZABOCIK. I hope to learn the names of g.g.grandparents.

It would be best to start a new thread rather than hijacking an existing one. That way, your replies will be segregated and grouped with the question/issue.
What RELIGION was the family. RC records for Pavlovce nad uhom are online.
