About the Balla surname

This may be of no use to anyone. But here goes anyway.

My g-granmother was a lady named Anna Beganyi. She came to the U.S. in 1901 and settled in Philadelphia. For some reason, her family was at about that time changing their surname to Genscin or something similar (there are many variants--think the most common one now is Gensey). Anyway, in 1902 she married a man named Andro Bellak (her name on the marriage record is Geci). To the best of my knowledge, Andro was Slovak. I have seen his name spelled many ways in records. Some of those include Belak, Bilak, Bella, and --relating to this message-- Balla. It probably depended on who was hearing him speak. He died in Philadelphia sometime around 1920. The couple had no children; but I think that Andro may have had a brother Michael living out in Collegeville. This may just be a willow-the-wisp. But anyone researching the name Balla might also consider taking a look at some of the names that were used to record stuff about Andro.
