I'm not sure where this should be, but hope this may be a suitable place.

Please, does anyone have any idea of where I could find information on Russian Coats of Arms ? My late husband was of Russian descent and his ancestor was always believed to be of minor aristocracy. A fellow researcher has recently tracked down a Coat of Arms and very kindly sent me a copy and I would dearly like to know the meaning of the quartering. The lettering does say '............. to all his male descendants' so presumably this applies to my son and grandsons.

Any advice much appreciated.

Google Russian Heraldry - a few sites will pop up.

Thank you - I had Googled and found several sites but no meanings for the quartering. I'll keep looking.
