    Hey-

    I'm looking for a particular family crest and have yet to find it. I was hoping someone here could direct me to a web site that may have info for me on this name and it's crest...

    The family name and crest is Larocque.

    Any help would be appreciated!


    Thanks guys!

    BC, I'm betting you meant to put this in Non. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] No biggie.

    I've done a search for you at http://www.Google.com

    At one of the links from http://www.google.com/search?q=Laroc...=Google+Search I found the following pic of a French Canadian Larocque family's coat of arms.



    Hope this helps, man. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    FYI--there also another site for those interested in finding out when their ancestors emigrated to America; it just came online, but will be difficult to access cause of high traffic. I just tried with no success.

    Funny, my roommate was just talking about the family coat of arms thing last night.

    I went to www.myroots.com to see what I could find. There is a "Kuper" family crest on there, but they won't let you see a decent-sized pic of it without purchasing something.

    I'm not sure if this is legit, because it also says the name Kuper originates in the Netherlands, and my family is very German.

    My family crest was easy enough to find actually. 9McAuliffe). I got a great image of it from the Net last year and went and got it tattooed on my arm last October.

    However my girlfriend's name (Larocque) has been more of a challenge to find....Thanks to DIF for finding it. I just wish I could find a BIGGER image of it!

    Actually, the wanky thing about Coats of Arms is name has nothing to do with it.

    You could very well have the name Murphy but not have legal rights to the Murphy Coat of Arms.

    Reason being is Arms are gained through inheritance. So if you can't prove direct relation to the individual awarded the Coat, you can't legally claim it.

    Ah, but that's not the case in America though, as we don't have such laws about heraldry. So technically, an American can claim whatever arms they want (and can even make their own up).

    Granted, most of the original people to move to America were among the poorer faction of society, and, as such, didn't HAVE a Coat of Arms.
