This collection, compiled by Library of Virginia staff, is an index to thirty-three titles that contain information and illustrations pertaining to family coats of arms. The Note(s) field on each entry indicates the information source.
Entries are searchable by personal name or surname followed by "family" (e.g., Smith family).
Using quotes around phrases may return fewer, more relevant results.
Boolean operators OR, NOT and AND written in ALL CAPS may be used. By default, all search terms will be combined with the AND operator. To exclude terms, use the NOT operator before a term.
Wildcards can be used to find variant spellings or words. The question mark (?) will match any one character. For instance, "Ols?n" will match "Olsen" or "Olson". The asterisk (*) will match any number of characters (including zero). "Ch*ter" will match "Charter", "Character", and "Chapter", and "Temp*" will match "Temptation", "Temple", and "Temporary".
