    I'm not nitpicking. Just offering information to the correct terms. "Family Crest" is a term that is used by the Companies that make their money ripping people off by offering to sell them their "Family Crest". Which is something that does not exist.

    I was simply giving the correct definitions. I like to know if I am calling something by an incorrect name and thought most people would also like to use correct terms.

    Sorry, but no offense was intended.

      Being related genetically and having the same surname is enough for me to hold high the family arms. If anybody has a problem with it... they can call me.

        Nobody in this thread said anything about your arms. What was discussed is a "Crest" is what sits on top of the helm, a crest is not the arms. If it is the point that arms belong to the whole family whether male, female, son of the mother and the like it is not true. Arms follow only direct male bloodline. You can believe otherwise if you want. Everybody has the right to be wrong about things from time to time.

              Back to the point.....I believe there were lions in England.
              Lions, and or other large cats were in England during ancient times.

                  I know I come from peasant stock so I know helms and coat of arms and all that does not apply to my family. Still interesting though.

                    TEB,

                    If you are in the US there is nothing stopping you from assuming arms for your family. You can create a coat of arms for your children to inherit. There are no US laws preventing this. The only thing is you want them to be unique and not arms of another line.

                      Yes, I saw film about capuchin monkeys on the Russian TV too. It is very interesting film.

                        What do you think about Stephen Oppenheimer book "Out of Eden. The peopling of the world"? Anybody read it? It's just about human migration.

                          Pre-sapiens hominids in England

                          Homo heidelbergensis was probably the species of hominid associated with the 700,000 BP artifacts.
