Coat of Arms

Postby rjdellamano » 20 Jul 2008, 17:13

Hello Everyone.
I think I have found my family Coat of Arms.
Does anyone know how I can be sure it's authentic?
Does anyone know how I can have a reproduction made? Something like a wall hanging. All the sites I've been to that have COAs do not have the Dellamano name.
Thanks in advance.
Bob

There are a lot of sites out there **SPAM** various products with family coat of arms - do not trust them. Even families that do have coat of arms have incorrect graphics on those sites. Coat of arms were only given to royalty and nobility so not everyone has one. You did not say where your family came from but here is an excellent site for Southern Italy:

CALABRIA

The rest of Italy

Hope this helps.
