Year's of searching and many failed attempts to find the origination of my family name or surname "CHIKTE" has brought me to the doorstep of experts of world history and many more things to please help me in understanding the meaning of my surname "CHIKTE". For years I have asked this question and haven't found an answer would really appreciate any inputs. Geographically most of the people originating by this surname come from the konkan region or coastal region of ratnagiri, maharashtra, india Fardin Chikte

History of ideas[edit]

Request for "Semita Recta" as a wiki page My impression was that it simply meant "straight path" as in referring to "go the straight path" in latin. I am very curious about this phrase as a historical item. I own an antique bench from belgium circa 1900 that has an inscription carved in oak wood that reads, "anno semita recta 1664". The bench looks like a church relic.

here is all of the info I can find on "Semita Recta" Notre Dame, In Peter Grund

“Semita Recta Albertus peribet testimonium”, ‘The Right Path Albertus bears witness’ Abstract: This article presents an edition of a Middle English verse tract on alchemy based on Trinity College, Cambridge, MS R. 14. 44 (15th century). The tract, entitled “Semita Recta Albertus peribet testimonium”, is structured as a dialogue between Albertus Magnus, the famous medieval scholar (c. 1200–1280), and Elchy_ell, the Queen of the Elves. In the dialogue, Elchy- _ell instructs Albertus on how to produce an alchemical elixir that will produce silver or gold. The Semita Recta is a poem of 64 rhymed lines. The setting of this description is a meeting between the medieval scholar Albertus Magnus (c. 1200–1280) and Elchy_ell, the Queen of the Elves, in a “weldernesse” outside Damascus (see 4.1).

Hence, the Semita Recta is to my knowledge unique among Middle English alchemical poems in exploiting the dialogue format as it does.

  • Jarradene – listed as a heritage townsite in Western Australia

To find the birth places of all, if not most of the Kamikaze Pilots of Japan during World War II. To be more specific, which Japanese islands these pilots were born in. As an example, "twenty-two pilots were born in Kyushu Island and fifteen were born in Hokkaido Island," etc. This may actually take someone to physically investigate birth records kept in Japan to search all the known pilots who have flown in the suicide missions. And once these records are completed, these same records must be verified by another individual for accuracy.

  • Brazilian Civil War Brazil experienced numerous civil wars, especially in the 19th century. There was no singular event such as the United States experienced, so this link would be something of a misnomer and there is already a list of Rebellions and revolutions in Brazil. I have changed the only link to this red link to rebellions and revolutions in Brazil, which was the only one extant on Wikipedia. However, it may be a good idea for someone to start a page covering the general topic.
