Where did the Italian Dacanay family come from? What is the Italian coat of arms/family crest? When did the Dacanay family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?
The Italian name Dacanay is derived from one of several places named Canale in northern Italy. The place name comes from the Italian word "canale," meaning "canal." Although the most traditional type of family name found in the region of Venice is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, local surnames, created from place names are also found. These local names, are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land, and often bear the prefix "di," meaning "from."
Spelling variations of this family name include: Canal, Canale, Canali, Da Canale, Da Canàl, Da Canal, Canaletto, Canalini, Canales and many more.
First found in the area around the city of Ferrara, where Tommaso Canali was a judge in the mid 12th century. One line of the Dacanay family originated in the Polcevera valley, northwest Italy, and was first mentioned in documents dating from the year 1100. Of this line, Emanuele Canale was a member of the faction that supported Paolo Da Novi in 1506. Otto Canella (d. before 1143) was Consul of Genoa in 1133 and is an ancestor of the House of Grimaldi, the family which to this day, rules Monaco.
Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Gusto Canale, who arrived in the city of Philadelphia in 1868; F. Canales, who arrived in New Orleans in 1825; A. Canales, who arrived in New Orleans in 1829.
I should get a very-very long vacation, away from FB.
Kinda thinking of doing this since i get an headache, sore throat and an heartache due to an unstable emotion dealing with certain irritating people in it!
Don't worry. They won't be looking for me here.
Since they're a kinda type of social human who love getting around people at the cyber and love playing online games... they rarely read any good books, let alone the heavy/non-fiction one or the blogging.
Even if they do read, they only luv manga or comic books kinda stuff. :P
So, i'll be doing juz fine right here and at GR-MY as well.
PROGRAM 50 Buku Setahun 2010 anjuran komuniti buku dalam talian, Goodreads Malaysia, mempelawa pembaca dan peminat buku untuk mencapai sasaran pembacaan 50 buku setahun dengan berkongsi pengalaman serta ulasan buku di laman web mereka.
“Impian itu bermula pada tahun ini melalui idea seorang pengendali kami, Najmuddin Yusoff, dengan 28 ahli sudah menyertai program ini sehingga Mei lalu, sekali gus menjadikan jumlah bacaan buku keseluruhan 640.
“Bagaimanapun pencapaian itu masih agak mengecewakan berbanding jumlah keseluruhan 348 ahli Goodreads Malaysia yang menyebabkan kami memerlukan pembaca tegar yang belum berdaftar untuk mencapai sasaran pembacaan,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan di laman webnya.
