Ok, so post pictures and list info on your heritage, post pictures, letters what ever about your family.

A great place to go ishttp://www.houseofnames.com/


My family are the Egertons (My Maternal Grandmother's side on her Paternal). We have strong ties in England that still hold to today. Some notable people on my family is:
Sir Francis Egerton (1800-1857), English 1st Earl of Ellesmere
* Sir Thomas Egerton (1540-1617), English lawyer
* Sir John Sutherland Egerton (1915-2000), 6th Duke of Sutherland
* Wilbraham Egerton (1832-1909), 1st Earl Egerton of Tatton, second Chairman of the Manchester Ship Canal from 1887 to 1894
* General David Egerton,
* Sir Phillip Egerton,
* Sir Seymour Egerton, Chairman of Coutts
* Steven Egerton, Diplomat
* Earl Francis Henry Egerton (1756-1829), 8th Earl of Bridgewater
* Earl John Egerton (1579-1649), 1st Earl of Bridgewater

Egerton is pure British and the coat of arms means "I trust in Virtue not Arms"


Rickman is my Dad's Dad's side and has ties in Germany.


Erwin is Scot and Irish. The motto means Fairly and Firmly.

That's awesome. I have some German, British, Irish, Scot, and I think a bit of Eastern Europe.

100% British, from Essex, given land by William the Conqourer in return for help at the battle of Hastings, pretty cool, but I doubt the website is very accurate

Smith. I've seen too many family crests to know which one is right, but all my family is from England.

The father's side is Smith (who've been in America for a couple hundred years).

The mother's side is Stevens and Butterworths (the Butterworths came to America in the 1920s).

Father's side is made up of sharecroppers (who misspelled my grandmother's name on her birth certificate), plumbers, and watermen (possibly small-scale pirates).

Mother's side is mathematicians, teachers, linguists, sailors (US Navy), and professional musicians.

I don't I'm related to anyone particularly famous.
The medium is the message!

My name wasn't found on that website.

My great-great-grandparents (or whatever) were from England. Other than that, I have absolutely no idea.

I hail from mother Russia and since my last name isn't really a common one I don't really know anymore than that :/

Macneil, Macdonald, Cameron, MacMillan. All Scottish from the highlands, and they're all drunken bastards too. Heritage can suck it, its nothing special.

Origin Displayed: Scottish

Where did the Scottish Carswell family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the Carswell family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

In the era before dictionaries, there were no rules governing the spelling or translation of names or any other words. Consequently, there are an enormous number of spelling variations in Medieval Scottish names. Carswell has appeared as Carswell, Cresswell, Carsewell, Cressville, Carswele, Kersewell, Cressewell and many more.

First found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Friù, a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland, where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.


EDIT-

or so the site says...

I don't know if it's info can be trusted

I don't have a family crest but I know -some- heritage...


My dad was adopted so that's a dead end, I know they had a welsh-sounding surname, so who knows.

My mum's family is half from Trondheim in Norway and half from Derbyshire in England, Derbyshire is where there was a huuuge viking settlement too, I don't really know much about the English side though.
