|Example Coat of Arms|
One of the great new features available from our recent merger is the ability for users to create their own Family Crest! Now you can showoff your heraldic display.
Click on your family tree and find the new tab that leads you to the build your family crest page. This fun new flash feature has 6 customizable elements of the coat of arms, each including loads of prefabricated design and hundreds of color options. Just as in a traditional Coat of Arms, here you can choose your shield, the helm or coronet, two supporters and a motto. As well, you can add charges for each field in the shield.
So have fun, create a crest suitable to your family, and its colorful history. Create a motto or just add the family name. Once you’ve created the crest, you have the option to save it as an image to represent the family site, or as a background image for the online family tree.
And now for the contest:
Send us a screen shot of your Family Crest, built in our application, and we’ll put them all up on the blog for users to vote the on their favorite user crest. The winner will get a free year of Premium subscription to MyHeritage.com!
