It's offical now, all of the Cernavas come from the area around the village of Nova Bystrica, Slovakia. I found Barbara Cernava Novich's birth - baptismal record on a microfilm copy of the Catholic Church records from Nova Bystrica. Nova Bystrica is located close to Kysucké Nové Mesto. See the maps below. I also found alot of other Cernavas and what seems to be alternate ways to spell Cernava as Csernava and Csernyava. Maybe it was the way it sounded to the writer. If you will go to the Forum section and then to the Documents you will find Ivan Cernava Sr.'s history.
It was traced from the microfilm copy. Anyone can get these microfilms from your local LDS. Mormon Church. The cost to rent them is $3.25 each for a month or so. The first roll of microfilm has Nova Bystrica, Slovakia on the end, the next roll is only the records from Nova Bystrica, Slovakia, the last roll has Nova Bystrica, Slovakia on the beginning part.

Family History Centers (located in LDS. Mormon churches) are branch facilities of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.
Centers provide access to most of the microfilms and microfiche in the Family History Library to help patrons identify their ancestors.
Everyone is welcome to come to the centers and use Family History Center resources. http://www.familysearch.org
