    Been there, done that. If it is strip flooring you shouldn't have too much trouble filling the space in, but you may need to rip some pieces and that will require some table saw skills. If your home has some age to it there is a good chance that today's wood will not match the existing flooring in thickness. Not a problem if you plan on sanding and refinishing. If you have plank flooring, and you can find matching wood you may need to remove a little more of the old flooring before you can start laying in new planks. And of course you can always hire a professional to do the work. If it's a small enough job it may just be time and material.

    I would try an architectural recyler, they usually have lots of old flooring. You could also try Habitat for Humanity Restore for some pieces. You could also rob some pieces from closets to fill in the missing areas. Just put plywood down in the closet to replace missing hardwoods.
