Tammy

Recall the history of Austria-Hungary up to 1918 and keep that in mind while you are looking at the records.
Here is a map :

Since they married in the states, I would recommend that you try to get to see what sort of information the church has. You need that name of a village.
If they came thru Ellis Island than they should be there.
Use this www.jewishgen.org/databases/EIDB/ellis.html
It is possible that they came thru Baltimore,Boston or Philadelphia. Need to locate their manifest which should have the name of a village. The thing that there is a mention of Czechoslovakia, I am leaning there. The former country of Czechoslovakia separated into Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. What religion were your ancestors?
The surname Kovacs / Kovac^ is just like Smith in US. I have a Kovac in my tree.
12 BERESNYAKs and BEREZSNYAKs came thru Ellis Island.
A spelling BREZ^N^AK, BREZN^AK and BEREZN^AK lists in Slovak Republic.
www.zoznamst.sk
Were they naturalized citizens? Did you look at the 1930 census? That one might have some more information.
