Heraldry Victoria developed as a more appropiate name for our Heraldry products website after Ancestry Victoria was born from a lifelong interest in family history and the question - Where Did our Ancestors Come From?


Our range of Heraldry items, and in particular, the Armorial History showing the Coat of Arms and the Surname history for their surname, gives any person with an interest in their family a possible guide to where the family first emerged.


This is complementary to genealogy, which starts from you and works back in time. The Armorial History goes to the beginning of the name, its source, its meaning, where it was first recorded, many variations in the spelling of the name, and how it has spread over the centuries.



Our Genealogical Research Service followed our ever growing search for a greater understanding of our family history.


Our own families had a certain amount of information on our family trees, which gave us a feeling of having roots. Back then they seemed huge, having hundreds of names on them. Now have a family tree with tens of thousands of names, and have found interesting details on many of them. 


These include convict records, military service records, immigration and naturalisation records, censuses, electoral records, newspaper clippings, obituaries, wills and other less well known data, as well as the more usual birth, christening, marriage, death and burial details. 


Over the time we have unearthed many sources of data and become familiar with many of the quirks of searching that can lead to hidden treasures. While this started as a pursuit for our own pleasure, others noticed what we had achieved and started to ask us for help. That made us realise that we could assist other people who did not have the time, resources or other facilities to find their own ancestors and other family details. 




There is plenty of variety for us as each family search winds in different directions. 


The challenges can be most rewarding when we come up with things people never knew or imagined, and can provide our clients with facts to fill out fond family memories. 


We'd love to help you with yours.
