A recent (March 17, 2010) post on the blog Paren(t)hesis entitled “Family History” (http://rothlbaby.wordpress.com/2010/03/17/family-history/) talks about someone spending some time tracking down his family roots, and coming across a coat of arms.
As he notes, “as part of my investigation, I found my family’s official coat of arms. I remember going through a heraldry-geek phase in middle school, and I must not have grown out of it, because I think that this is unbelievably cool.” (Here's the coat that he found for his family.)
Happy New Year!
