Donovic (or possibly Donovsky), from Resen

Posted: 1238456703000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Donovic, Donovsky

I am researching my grandfather, who came to the US in 1923. He lists his birthplace as Resen, Serbia, but his closest relative was his mother, Ana Donovic, in Macedonia.

I did find a Resen in both Serbia and Macedonia. His immagrations records have his last name as Donovic, but someone suggested it could have been changed from Donovsky. This makes sense to me, because upon hearing the name Donovsky, some little memory was stirred.

With country border and name changes and the Balkan Wars, you can see my confusion. Can anyone shed some light on this, or maybe point me in a direction I should go? Thanks in advance for any help/info.
