Step by step, there is order in doing genealogy. You can not pick up in the middle, you have to start with yourself going backwards. We all have heard some family stories and sometimes they are just that stories. There is never an end to genealogy. Just when you get few questions answered a new one comes up.
Forwarding 2 sites about history of Czechoslovakia which should put few things into perspective.
