War Stories from the Genealogist’s case-book.

Records of registrations of coats of arms – and the associated pedigrees – may be the only evidence there is of a lineage. This can help break down genealogical brick walls. But heraldry is often dismissed as difficult, recondite and of no contemporary relevance. Nonsense! Heraldry is a living science and art, and paradoxically very easy to understand.

In this podcast Dr Bruce Durie explains how heraldry works – with examples of real-life genealogies solved with heraldic records (Scottish, English and Irish)
