An article on February 16 in the on-line newspaper KnoxNews.com notes that a recent meeting of the Captain Thomas Carter Chapter, Colonial Dames 17th Century, in Knoxville, Tennessee, featured members explaining how to research and document a colonial ancestor’s heraldry coat of arms.
It's great that they're doing that, but I did notice that in the photograph accompanying the story (found on-line at: http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2011/feb/16/yournews-historical-society-members-study-heraldry/), one of the pieces being demonstrated looked like a print from one of those "Your Family Coat of Arms" purveyors. Ah, well, you win some, you lose some.
