    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.

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

    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.

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.

    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.
