searchDISCLAIMER: The information you will receive is based on heraldic sources. It is NOT a personalized, direct line of descent or lineage. Such can only be obtained through extensive genealogical research at higher cost. Once you have obtained a copy and know what your Coat of Arms looks like you may want to create your own artistic rendition. There are Heraldic rules & guidelines involved in creating a Coat of Arms and it’s symbols to be heradically and proportionally correct. The books listed below may assist you in this. If you need professional help please request a FREE Consultation

 

Generally there are 2 ways you could obtain a coat of arms:
1. Do a full genealogical research that fully traces the lineage of your family back to it’s origins. This is the most costly and time consuming, but the best and surest way to determine if an old genuine coat of arms existed in your family.

2. Or go to an internet coat of arms search site, this is the least expensive, but the information you will receive is based on heraldic sources, not individual genealogical search that traces your lineage. You might end up with a coat of arms for your name but this is NOT to be confused with a personalized search of descent or lineage , or a coat of arms that is newly and uniquely designed for you.

You could do the above either by yourself, or by hiring a qualified researcher/artist to design or paint a unique coat of arms for you. Registration for your coat of arms is optional, but if you chose to do so I will work in coordination with the registration entity to ensure the design conforms with their guidelines.
