Heraldry & Genealogy
 
                  
 
Presented by Greg Hand
Heraldry & Genealogy
Coats of arms provide an important historical record for genealogists. The study of arms, known as heraldry, uncovers clues to birth order, property, name origin, geography and occupation of your ancestors. There are many myths and misconceptions about heraldry and some unique jargon, known as blazon. Learning about heraldry can enrich your family tree.

RootsWeb & Ancestry Data Breech

RootsWeb has been down for well over 6 months. 
In my opinion, RootsWeb is gone for good. 
Ancestry owns RootsWeb.
This impacts CCGS as we still had a significate amount of content on RootsWeb. Other societies have their entire web presence on RootsWeb.
I would urge you to call Ancestry and let them know how this impacts you.
