Betty, I finally have more info on filip. My grandfather came to US Oct. 03 1910, leaving out of Rotterdam. He used the name Janos Fillep (he had to pretend he was hungarian) The town Bobota was called Nagy Dersida. He had a twin sister named Flora who died in 1910. He also may have had 2 other siblings, but he gave no names. His father, Vasile died when he was 2 in the year 1898. He then left to go live with his grandfather and 2 Uncles in Supur.
His grandparents names were Simion Filip & Floare Balota.
