Okay forgive me, I may have used the wrong term. I am fairly new to this but there are some things I do know. I know that the black and white photo that was posted earlier in the thread resembles the same one that my grandparents have at their house. Is it called the Coat of Arms? (What is it a picture of?) Everyone who calls it a family crest seems to get struck by lightning so im sure its not called that.
Im sure there is a trail leading my paternal bloodline somewhere, and considering my grandparents have this same image, it may belong to my family.
Now I didn't go out and pick a random coat of arms that i typed in Google because of the obvious already stated facts above. Also, I have tried searching for the same image online, and I have not been able to find it elsewhere. Which is why I was surprised to find it on this website from another users posting. Maybe its someone in my family that I may be related too, I don't know. Dont quote me on anything, im not trying to claim anything. Just trying to learn something.
