We've had family in the area doing genealogy for a while now and just recently someone got a hold of the Family Crest. The only major down side is that we don't have the faintest idea of who, how, when, and why it was granted. Ever since I saw it I've wondered, but all I know it that it's either German ot Prussian. I mean, field with the eagle sitting proper is understandable, but I was wanting to know things like why is it split in three fields or the reason for the crossed swords and plumes behind the helm. Any help would be most apreciated.
