What's a Signet Ring?
Personal Note: Traditionally, male members of my family are given a signet ring when they come of age. However, these days we seldom use them for sealing documents. If you have a signet ring and need to seal a document, remember to take it off before pushing the ring into the hot wax. A gold ring is a rapid conductor of heat!

Heraldic Links

The last of these links contains an interesting statement by the Garter King of Arms in England about the relationship between heraldic arms and specific surnames.
Following family lineage across many generations is a great way to gain perspective on history,
and oneself. I know that some of my ancestors have done good things, but undoubtedly
some have done bad things. Hopefully, by learning more about all of these people, their lives,
and their times, the future ratio of good to bad can be improved. (Stephen Cobb, 1996)
