So do you have a place of birth? That is what is needed for the research.
Speaking Slovak would be present Slovak Republic.
Up to 1918 the records would say Hungary in which empire 12 different languages spoken. After the fall of A-H empire, several new countries were formed and one was Czechoslovakia, which in 1993 separated into Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. The term "Czech" is not being used correctly. By the surname, I would say your ancestor was Ruthenian/Rusin=Byzantine Catholic. (maybe)
John is Janos in Hungarian, Jan in Slovak
George is Gyorgy in Hungarian, Juraj in Slovak
