I was recently looking up my family tree doing some ancestory digging for my mother when I found this site:

All you do is type in a past family surname into it's search engine and it'll give you the history of where it came from and the image for your family coat of arms. (aka Family Crest)
- You have to make sure your family has ancestory in Europe at least. Otherwise it won't work. Like my father who's family originated from the Philippines. There are no crests from the islands. Wink
It's really something. I located 4 family crests already just on my mothers side of the family. (^O^*)




I just thought it would be interesting to those of you users out there wanting to know more about the history of your families. (^-^*)
- Maybe show of your new found family crest too. Laughing

DISCUSS:
    - Family Crests
    - Family Tree's
    - Family Ancestory
    - Anything to do with Family Coat of Arms

Yay I got first post. Well I just looked and it didn't have my Surname which is wierd because my great grandparents on my dad's side came over from Europe. I looked up my mother's and it is blue with a sun on it. It was pretty but I'm not going to pay for it because that is too expensive to me. For a picture it should be $5 tops. Then again my mother's surname could of been changed throughout the years as well. I think I shall create a family crest of arms myself.


*draws a picture that is to horrible to post so describes it instead.*

The top left picture is deer with a rifle crossing. The top right picture is a paintbrush with a flower crossing. The bottom right picture is a paintbrush standing next to a cupcake . The bottom left picture is a book holding a pen and next to it a computer with if it weren't for tiny print would be showing this post. XD The middle picture is going to be showing tree cats. A black and white male with a blue color saying Sir Porker. A tan/beige/blonde male with a purple color saying Sir Lucky. A grey,white,black,tan,spotted,striped female with a lepard colar saying Lady Spud.


Well what do you think Lady JuanaLene of that family crest. Tehehe!!!

Very interesting, especially since my brother just got married.


This is mine.

The name Kraft is derived from the old German word "craft," which means "strong" or "courageous." In the early Middle Ages, Kraft was a popular first name among knights because it referred to strength. In the early 14th century a number of branches in southern Germany adopted Kraft or Craft as a family name.

Lady Jamr516, I just took a screen cap of mine for the sake of sharing it.

My maiden name wasn't on there... but then again, it never is on things like that!
My maiden name (Goldstraw) is actually old English, but it's very rare, so it's usually not listed on searches and stuff.

Here's our coat of arms:


The name 'Goldstraw' is actually a derivative of 'Goosetree', so, if you look at the top of our coat of arms, our crest is:


Yes. Everyone else has stags and lions on their family crest... I have a duck. Great.

My surname isn't listed... probably due to spelling changes...

Mom's maiden name is Biggerstaff, so as you'd imagine the arms comtained crossed staff shapes...lol.

Following my dad's side, I got this.



Barker is a fairly common name with Anglo-Saxon roots. It's an occupational name referring to either a shepherd or a person who strips bark from trees for the tanning process. (in leatherwork)

The motto is "Fide Sed Cui Vide" -- "Trust, but in whom take care."

I found nothing. :/

But then again, I don't really care for any ancient Coats of Arms my family might have had and I don't even know if my family is from around here. You see, no one knows where my great-great-grandfather came from and people often mistake me for asian, so we kids are making up theories (mom denies anything) about our family's ancestry. XD

Besides, I'm proud of my Coat of Arms I made myself:

The name Wymer is definitely German. It stems from the German name, Weimar (sounded out as a v for the "W" and an i for the "ei".

And since it was unpopular to have a German last name during either of the "World Wars"...very unpopular, the spelling of many German last names were changed to a colloquial spelling and in the case of your name, the ei was replaced with a "y" and the a with an "e").

Now one must also keep in mind that the English stemmed from Anglo Saxon tribes and the Saxons of Saxony are German.

PS Those are nice icons that you make.
