AltaVista: Translations
AltaVista has a new service on the World Wide Web: automatic translation of documents from one language to another. The new service will automatically translate English documents into French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish. In addition, it will translate documents in any of these five languages into English. This can be useful if you have a document or an extract from a book written in a language that you do not read. It also can be used to write letters to a vital records office in a foreign land.
The College of Arms
The College of Arms holds the official register of all Coats of Arms or heraldry in England and Wales (the Court of Lord Lyon has jurisdiction in Scotland). If you think one of your ancestors may have been granted one of these honors, this is a good place to start your research to find it.
