Stemme

Postby Seraphina » 21 May 2008, 19:33

Could anyone help me with something that has been puzzling me for some time, please.

In my grandmother's family there is a copy of a coat of arms which, at the bottom of the "certificate", lists a few names within the family or connected with the family. This "certificate" looks very old.

According to what is written on the "certificate" the family originated in Bavaria in the 12th century. Withn the last 2 years I have found a family living in the early 19th century in Bavaria, with the German equivalent of the surname, who used an identical coat of arms.

What I would like to know is, where can I find out about both these stemme. Is there a European Heraldry Office I could apply to for information?

I have tried an Italian Heraldry website, but didn't get anywhere with it.

Hope someone can give me a lead.

Can you post a copy of the document here so we can see it?

Unfortunately, I can't, Nuccia. The "certificate" is in the possession of my mother's cousin in Italy and hangs on his wall in a frame.

I might be able to get a photo of it from my sister, but this could take some time.

But if you have any suggestions as to where I can search in the meantime I'd be very grateful.

Seraphina.

Thanks for the two websites to search on, Nuccia.
Unfortunately, I have found nothing on either of them. I'll just have to wait until my sister emails me a photo of the stemma.

Thanks for your help.

I'm sorry to hear that you've had no luck. Please, do post the picture of the stemma once your sister sends you it. I'm very curious to see it.

Good Luck.
