Many genealogists and family historians turn aside from heraldry with the misconception that it is not for them but rather some medieval mystery.
This course aims to show that the records of heraldry can be of great use to family historians and is suitable for absolute beginners and those with some experience. Practical guidance will be given on how to understand heraldry and how to identify coats of arms.
