Hi,
I have not read this article myself, and I am not entirely sure what you are looking for, but this article may be of use to you. If you cannot access it yourself, I have downloaded a copy and can send it to you I think, somehow. Here it is:

Wlislocki’s Transylvanian ‘Gypsies’
and the discourses on Aryanism around 1900. By: Iulia-Karin Patrut. From: Romani Studies 5, Vol. 17, No. 2 (2007), 181–204.

I hope it proves useful to you. I obtained the article from EBSCOhost through my school's database.

I lived 10 years in Transylvania (Cluj-Naoca) and loved every minute of it. It is a great land and people of the different ethnic groups you mentioned. I loved the customs and traditions. I loved the pase of life there. I loved that it was different. I loved the differences that each group brought to the area. I realized that I would always be the foreigner, but was delighted to learn the Romanian language enough to communicate on any level about any subject. This began at age 50 for me and I left at age 60. I think of Transylvania many times a day when I am away. I rarely think of home (Tennessee and Kentucky) when I am in Transylvania.
