THE RADOVAN OF PAGBILAO

Updated November 18, 2005

About Our Family Research


This search was meant to establish where the Radovan genealogy started. To date as to my understanding, as told by my parents and elders, Radovan Family in the Philippines came from one set of ancestors, to this day i have no confirmed information where it really came from as our own family history confines its roots in Lucban Quezon. In my CE Board examination in 1983 i met a a board applicant with the same surname as mine, Ovid Radovan who resides in Sual Pangasinan, I mentioned this to my father and confirmed that we have distant relatives there, even in Laoag Ilocos Norte, Dagupan Pangasinan. This established two things to my mind, that Radovan family evolves in Northern Luzon and Southern Luzon of the Philippines. As to who came from whom, this is the purpose of my research.But as i delved into it, another factor came to my face, as internet search leads me to another possible places where Radovan existed, in the country of Yugoslavia, Croatia, Bosnia RADOVAN exists as surname and first name...????? i need to learn how they use their names in these places as i understand that in some places (muslim) they mention first their surname before the first name like Muhammad Ali. In my search i found Radovan personalities in the field of sports Chrz Radovan & Radovan Somik, in science Radovan Jancek, robotics (Radovan Robotics) music & arts Christian Radovan, Radovan Pavlovski, entertainment (Joe radovan of the Royal tops Yoyo)and not so great Radovan Karadzic (the most wanted for his war crimes)though as i mentioned earlier i dont know if his surname is radovan or karadzic. My search is still on and still digesting until i came accross this genealogy.com that may be useful later on. If you happen to read this page i will assume that we have the same purpose of finding our roots. Please fill me in how much you have gone searching, maybe we can find a link that will finally confirm we came from one set of ancestor.
