The Academy of Saint Gabriel Homepage   -   The Academy of Saint Gabriel does historical research on names and heraldry,
primarily for history hobbyists interested in re-creating medieval and Renaissance
Western cultures. The Academy will give you information about the authenticity
of your name or arms; and if they believe it could be more authentic, they will
suggest ways to improve it. However, they cannot help you with questions
about genealogy or family arms. They also generally do not help people trace
the origins of modern surnames.
