I am a Canadian who has been residing in the US since 1980 and retired recently after 26 years in the USMC. Born in Montreal, my mom asked the "Heraldic House" there to research and provide a coat of arms for my family name back in 1982. They did and I was given a family coat of arms complete with oinion paper description. My problem is that the "Heraldic House" no longer exists and this plaque has disappearred with other personal items.
I wish to finally replace it as well as ensuring my family coat of arms is officially certified once and for all. I will be visiting Ottawa soon and will stop by the RHSC in person to accomplish this matter. Is there anything else I can do?
Your site is a plethora of information, thank you.

Wonderful Site. Thank you for the debunking of the "Family Coat of Arms" I've been very interested in Heraldry for some time, particularly in the coat-of-arms that purportedly belongs to my family. Knowing that this is not so has saved me some trouble regarding a tattoo I was planning. Thank you.

Despite what it says in an earlier listing, England's supporters were not a pair of lions. They went through a number of changes and were finally a lion and a dragon. The dragon was replaced by a unicorn with the Act of Union.

My second question is: England's supporters are a pair of lions, Scotlands a pair of Unicorns, France's were a pair of angels. What were Navarre's? I mean before it was united with France when it adopted angels as well, because I have this coin with Navarre's coat of arms and these bizarre dog creatures as supporters. I would like to know what they are.

In answer to the question about the term "targent"; I was unable to see the example of blazon referred to. However, the term targent is a synonym for the more usual "torqued" and usually refers to a serpent whose body is in a wavy form. For questions about heraldry, you might be better to go to our new heraldic forum in the Heraldic Resources submenu of this site. Kevin.

Most enjoyable and colorfull. I did note however, that your comments on misconceptions of Heraldry refers to the 'British' order of things which is vastly different to the 'Continent's' rules of Heraldry, where a titled family carry the same 'Arms' and title through all legitimate progeny descendant (male & female) until extinction. Therefore, on the Continent of Europe, all males born to the family are titled and carry the title on with the 'Arms' but the female members do not pass them on to their children, as they would carry the privileges of their fathers family. I trust this makes it a bit clearer for your readers.

The favourable comments from Tom Montgomery are much appreciated by myself and I am sure by John Wilkes, who indeed remains "the backbone of the Society". However, I would be remiss if I did not give the real credit for our new website to the person almost wholly responsible -- David Cvet of Toronto. David only joined the Society in January, but by May 1 had conceived and built most of what you see today -- and which he continues to improve and enlarge on a daily basis. He also causes me more work than I need at my age! Thanks are also due to Susan Peters of Barrie for her many contributions. We have a great team. Kevin Greaves.

The website has come a long way from its earlier years. Congratulations to everyone along the way who has contributed. A special acknowledgement is extended to President Kevin Greaves and to Secretary/1st VP John Wilkes. Kevin, you have accomplished so much during your tenure including maintaining the erudite tradition of the Journal and the Gonfanon while at the same time introducing a much needed and appreciated humour and personal touch. It is apparent that John Wilkes continues to be the backbone of the Society. His efforts and dedication do not go unnoticed.

I especially enjoyed the section on Heraldry for Kids. I will forward the web site to the teaching staff at my school so that they will be able to use the site when they are teaching Mideval times. When will the 'puzzle' section be up and going?

Excellent website. This is certainly a great new version that is well thought-out. I especially like the "Heraldry 4 Kids" section. It is great to encourage an interest in heraldry to the youngest of Canadians. Well done.

Very well done. As a fellow heraldry society webmaster, my plea to you is, not to go on creating innovative new modules because my 'members' will want them too...! Congratulations.

What a wonderful site. I especially liked the Kids' Corner, about my mental level, I think. I usually follow the HSS site, so must now expand my ideas. Good luck.

I'm glad to see that your society exists. (How easy has it become to have your own coat of arms? It seems to me that the are handed out too freely, like the Order of Canada!)

I am trying to teach some elementary students about heraldry and crests. Can you send me by e-mail the basic terms of heraldry and how crests are formed? Sincerely Fr. Ron Comeau

brilliant site! Had formerly been unaware that we had our own Heraldic Authority. Had assumed we were an annex of HM's College of Arms. Question raised, however, why would the arms of the female GG's/LG's be formed on a escutcheon as opposed to a losenge, seeing as they would be equivilant to a peeress of sorts. Anyways, still surfing. and enjoying!

I thoroughly enjoyed your site. It helped me identify a crest on a family medallion issued for the 200th anniversary of the marriage of Claude Matthias Farnsworth-Phaneuf and Catherine Charpentier in 1913. Thank you.

The history and the application is very nice, but what are your eligibility requirements for membership? I might be interested in the Quebec "branch" was it? Thank you for your help.

This is a fascinating subject! I'm enjoying it very much, except that I can't find anything on the web explaining what the various charges actually signify. I am interested in the semiotic aspect of heraldry, as well as the origins of the designs. Can you give me any direction? Thanks.
