Lucky things.

      I was enjoying browsing the site up to this point:
      “Family identity is powerful and a universal human need. Now in this modern world where people are rapidly being reduced to mere numbers, the need to establish one’s cultural origins is of greater importance today than ever before.”

    These are nice, but just to be pedantic you’re technically not entitled to display heraldry unless you’re the direct descendant of the person to which it was granted. Ie the arms belong to a branch of a family, not a surname or clan. They therefore do not express cultural origins. You can however apply to the Chief Herald to get your own grant of arms.

    Ordinary folks with notions about their ancestry.

    Ye were all scraping for spuds in the stoney ground.

    Not my ancestors though. We were fair haired Saxons with large appendages.
