Matthew

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 http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/austhung.htm 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)
