    • Congratulations!

      Congratulations on finally getting the last of those 67 markers!

      You were blessed to have picked up your place back when property was inexpensive.

      I would like to have a motorcycle, but I haven't ridden one since I was a kid. I would probably have to take lessons to be able to get a license for it.

          The countryside is not far from where I live.

          I-95 is like a parking lot most days, so I wouldn't try to ride a bike there anyway.

          Have you painted a big, bright green R1b1c on your helmet?

          • I'd like to have my coat of arms embroidered on a denim vest. I could Fly my own family colours.

            First i have to find out which coat of arms my ancestor was associated with.

            So the wait for my genetic match continues...

                  I got it.

                  That coat of arms is really cool, by the way. I like the oak tree.

                  I'm a big fan of trees, so a coat of arms like that appeals to me.

                    Mike,

                    Except for a few examples from Eastern Europe, a coat of arms does not belong to anyone that happens to share a surname. A coat of arms belongs to an individual, not the family. I do believe the right to bear a coat of arms may be inheritable but I'm not positive about that point. You could 'adapt' a coat of arms and have it registered in some countries. The U.S. is not generally one of them, though.

                    Gaelic tradition allows family members to display the 'Crest' part of an entire coat of arms in a buckled setting as a clan badge. An example of the Clan MacMillan's badge can be found at the top of this page: http://home.comcast.net/~mcmillanmai...MacMillan.html

                      DMac is correct. A coat of arms only passes down the male line of the family. In the English system the oldest male son inherits the arms of the father, the younger sons have a difference on the shield to show their position. In continental Europe it is common that all sons inherit the arms without difference, but always in direct line to the father. So basically, there is no such thing as a "Murphy"Coat of arms.

                      If you cannot prove direct male descent to the original arminger you cannot bear the arms.

                      • Association through dna matching with someone who knows their family history will be good enough for me.

                        What is the point of a last name? if you can't celebrate the colours associated with the name?

                        you Vikings are all the same..

                        • Here is my coat of arms.

                          It's in my blood (but not when I'm driving).

                            I agree. Besides, we North Americans are not bound by Old World conventions.

                            If you believe you have a familial relationship, then fly the colors.

                              That's why I like the Gaelic idea of throwing the bone to the clan members by allowing them to display the badge.

                                I don't have any problems personally with people displaying a coat of arms of some long dead person...especially one whose line has daughtered out. I would not however display the arms of the current chief of Clan MacMillan and claim them as my own. In my mind, the biggest issue are the companies that advertise "We have you family's coat of arms for sale." That's just false advertising and taking advantage of an unsuspecting/gullible consumer.
