Crispin from Brunn, not sure where to begin

Surnames: Crispin, Crispen, Kondela
I'm fairly new to genealogy research so I'm not too sure where to go here (particularly now that I'm searching outside the US!). My great grandfather, Charles Peter Crispin, was born in Brunn, Austria in 1893. His father was Adolf/Adolph Crispin and his mother was Anna (possibly Kondela as a last name, but I haven't verified that yet). According to the Naturalization records I found, they came to the US on 2 Jun 1892 through Baltimore but I don't think that is correct. I think it is more likely that it was 1895 because I know Charles was born in Austria and came to the US as a baby. Anna died in Chicago in 1908 and Adolf died in Wisconsin in 1948. According to this death certificate, his father's name was Wilset Crispen. I would love to find more information about this family but I don't have a clue where to start! Can anyone help?

Thanks
