Lupears from Sibiu

Hi there,

I'm hoping to find some information on my great-grandparents, George and Elizabeth Lupear.

George Lupear emigrated to the USA from Sibiu, Romania sometime around the turn of the 20th century, and moved around the country doing odd jobs before settling in the Indianapolis area. Eventually, he earned enough money to bring some friends over, including Elizabeth (Compagna?) whom he eventually married.

They apparently owned and operated a general store in Indy and had four children: George (b. 25 Aug 1915), Marie (my paternal grandmother, b. 12 Mar 1917), John and Alex. After awhile they relocated to the Detroit area.

Any information about the Lupear family in general or these individuals in particular would be most welcome. If there are any online birth records for Sibiu or records of emigration, I'd appreciate help with those as well.
