Slyvych looks like a surname spelling transliterated from the Cyrillic
Hungarians had a surname ending -ics which was not native to Hungarian
but a phonetic adaptation i.e. written -ics pron. ick.
Slivics looks like such a surname spelling.
In Magyar the letter sz is pron. s.
The letter cs was pron. ch ,ts.
The letter cs pron. as ts was eliminatesd in 1910.
Or perhaps it was spelled Szlivicz ?
Or, the surname was spelled with the Slovak diacritic letter c^ = ch.
