Frequently Asked Questions

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q: Is there more than one Coat of Arms for a given surname.

A: Yes, some names have MANY coats of arms from different time periods, and branches of the family.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q: How can i be sure i get the Coat of Arms i want ?

A: There is a block on our order form that asks you to describe the coat of arms you would like. Otherwise, we use the oldest one we can find in our records.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q: What is the "Hall of Names?"

A: Hall of Names is the name of our data-base, or collection of history and heraldry products. These products are produced by our parent company Swyrich Corporation, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, and are sold by Hall of Names licensees at locations of their choice. Each Hall of Names licensee is an independant owner of their own business. Founded in 1972, we started as a family business, and have grown to be truly international in scope. There has been some confusion as another company also uses the name Hall of Names. Our company is known as "Hall of Names by Swyrich", or "Hall of Names Marketing Inc."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q: Where do you get your information?

A: From the most respected sourcebooks available. After twenty-five years we have managed to acquire a relatively large collection of historical reference materials, and we are constantly adding to our collection. We have a partial Bibliography which you may view at your leisure.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q: What information does a history contain?

A: Each history is approximately 1800 words long. The history begins with the earliest record of the surname and then follows the family as it branched through the Old Country and subsequently through the New World. The history lists the names of the earliest settlers as they migrated to North America, modern notables of the family name and variations in spelling.
