Title: Spasa Pavlovic
Post by: Jackiemh on Saturday 08 August 20 04:06 BST (UK)
Another unusual name for my tree.
Spasa was the 2nd husband of one of my Hazlewoods. Apparently he was b1915 (where?) and d1984 in Dudley.
Marriage took place in 1953 in Oldbury, Worcestershire.
Is the surname from the old Yugoslavia region? Is there an english equivalent for Spasa?

Hi Jackie

This may or may not be your chap, but this one apparently came from Yugoslavia.

Thank you Gaie
It is him, the address tallies with a newspaper report of 1956.
