It's All About Class: Heraldic Visitations

Look out for my article 'It's All About Class: Heraldic Visitations' in the May 2014 issue of Family Tree magazine. Heraldic visitations, which are reports made by royal heralds in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are one of my favourite resources for family histor and more general history research. The records are pedigrees of families that claimed the right to a coat of arms and often go back generation. Read my article for more detail on what they are, how to use them, and how to spot problems with your family's pedigree.
