Marya (Maria) Cibik = Цибік in Ukrainian (closer transliteration/sounds-like would be TZY-BEAK)
Anastazia (nick probably Nastia) Kasarda = Касарда in Ukrainian
Mihaly (Michael) Leszo = Лесьо in Ukrainian (sounds-like LE-SYO)
Basilius (Wasylij) Pekar Leszo = Пекарь in Ukrainian (sounds-like PEH-CARRR)
Maria Leszo Magada = Магада in Ukrainian (sounds-like MA-HA-DA)
Your Mala Berezna is actually selo/village Malyj Bereznyj. At turn of previous century it was called Kisberezna > Berezna jaras/district > Ung megve/county > Kingdom of Hungary< Austro-Hungarian Empire. It was hamlet size w/population of 749, predominantly German, Hungarian and Rusyn. The filial GC and RC Parishes and filial Jewish kahal were in Nagyberezna (today Velikyj Bereznyj).

TODAY Malyj Bereznyj=Малий Березний> Velykobereznyanskij raion/district > Zakarpatska oblast/region > Ukraine, latest zip 89040.

This past September your ancestral village celebrated its 585th anniversary. It was founded appx 60 yrs before Columbus discovered America.
Don't have that much more time today. Will finish up w/more details end of week. Happy Holidays !!!
