"Your Family Coat of Arms"

Last April, Barry Canote over on his blog Missouri and Things posted a discussion about heraldry and coats of arms, and in particular, about something I have railed about myself a number of times on this blog: bucket shop heraldry, those folks who try to sell you "your family coat of arms," or even worse, "your family crest."

You can find Barry's post on-line at

It's a nice concise post, well thought out, and expressive of his own experiences with heraldry in his family.  I recommend it to you as worth reading.

For my own part, it's nice to know that I'm not all by myself in being "a voice crying in the wilderness" about bucket shop heralds.
