John's Paternal Genealogy

Terezia Leabu (1892-1975) and Nicolae Boia (1892-1975).

John (Ioan) Boia (1881-1970) -- a Romanian sheepherder who died in Hot Springs, Montana in 1970. At this time I do not have enough information to connect him to my family tree.

A great resource for researching Romanian ancestry is the Romania World GenWeb.
