Things are a little sketchy now, but the key is to locate their hometown. Since
you have a death certificate, I suggest you contact the church/cemetery where
they were buried and ask for a copy of their record. This is how I located the
town of my great grandparents. Until I did this, all official records just
listed them as from "Austria". Once you have their town of birth, you can start
looking at microfilmed church records, ship manifests, etc.
