The Markusovce Parish Registers have quite a bit on the Cvengros family.
You can get the reels at any Family History Center of the LDS Church.
There are also scattered family records in several nearby villages too.
Go to http://www.iarelative.com/krispin.htm
for some info and others
researching the name.

Don't know your surnames.
Expect Cvengros was Hungarian surname from Upper-Hungary (Slovakia)
Márkusfalva (H) Markus^ovce (SK) formerly located in Szepes megye (county),=
Hungary, now Slovakia.
Expect surname Geletka was Slovak and surname Geltaka ? was Czech.
Tell me emigrant surname(s) State of residence in U.S. and I will tell
you easy route to locate naturalization papers.
