Grandfather Slovakian Origin

Classification: Query
Surnames: Safko, Szmar, Czmar, Smar
Janos Czmar (Szmar) arrived NYC on Carpathia, Nov. 13, 1905, traveled with father. Ships Manifest identifies him as Jamos Czinovo (?), but the age, destination and same ship and dates confirm his identity (item 11.) His last residence, assuming it was his Slovakian home is handwritten and hard to decipher, but is something like " Galyvitz ." I found no current listing of a Slovakian town resembling this. I believe the region to be Presov or Kosice. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.
