It's advisable to include a time frame and approximate birth years of those you're seeking info on.

Name variations of "Lanaville", like those of most non-English speaking immigrants, are due to what the registrar (the clergy, census taker, etc) heard and their best guess at how to spell it. Illiterate ancestors couldn't offer the "correct" spelling.

This name appears to be of French Canadian origin, the most likely original variation of it would be Laneuville, which is a dit name.

Hi, i'm actually taking a class that talk about genealogy. I'm looking for info also... Lanaville has changed along the years...the spelling varies : Lanoville, Lanauville, Laneville, Laneuville. It is french-canadian (Québec) as I am, then I don't know it's from where in France before that...

A lot of french canadians moved to the states...Like Jack Kerouac :) ...If you look in Canadian archives..I'm sure you will find something,
