last name pronunciation

hi -

i've decided to figure out how to pronounce my last name. i've never really heard anyone say it aloud and i'm not in contact with my father nor his family. i am assuming it's polish, as i have nothing to go by other than the spelling (brzoznowski). my best guesses have ended up with [bʐɔz.'] (it's been ages since i took a linguistics course, so please forgive me if i botched the transcription format).

so, once i figure out how it's probably transcribed, is there a website that can take IPA symbols and read them off as a word? i can't seem to make the "bʐ" sound without struggling.
