I think you are onto something.
I emailed the two of you.
My wife is Karen Myra Filip. Her dad was named Alexandru Gheorge Filip. He was born in Sopor de Cluj??. He had one brother, Florin Filip (now in Switzerland) and one sister who now lives in Germany. His parents were Gabriel and Myra Filip. We don't know where they were born or anything. We do know they died in Bucharest and lived in Bucharest at least since the 70's.
We are told the family was from the Transylvania area and there was a history of important military positions and a closeness with the king of Romania before Communism.

The two living siblings of my Wife's dad offer little to know information. They say there was a family bible that had all the geneological info you could want but no one seems sure who has it now. If only I could get my hands on that!
