The link belong is an American website so the written information is completely inaccurate as they have no Heraldry and little understanding of Coats of Arms and the laws and rules surrounding them. However for a fun project with your children or for a school project where you need to design Arms or understand about heraldry this is a way of doing it.
For more information about the MYTHs around 'family crests' and 'surname crests' see the Coats of Arms....Myths page on this website

Instead of filling in those commercial FH websites who then take all your research and sell/use it, build your own free FH website, use a free family tree compiler and keep your information your own. You can give people your webpage address and/or password it and /or make it private. It is your choice!
Calculate the family relationship between two people who share a common blood ancestor.Cousin calculator
When the word "removed" is used to describe a relationship, it indicates that the two people are from different generations. The words "once removed" mean that there is a difference of one generation. For example, your mother's first cousin is your first cousin, once removed. This is because your mother's first cousin is one generation younger than your grandparents and you are two generations younger than your grandparents. This one-generation difference equals "once removed." Twice removed means that there is a two-generation difference. You are two generations younger than a first cousin of your grandmother, so you and your grandmother's first cousin are first cousins, twice removed.
Encourage children to spend some quality time with family members when everyone gets together.
Children can interview family members and make an illustrated timeline of the most important family events and memories. Download a free chart to fill it, or a timeline from the links page .
This is a great way to learn about their family's history and to capture memories forever. When children use what they learn about their families to make a timeline, they make meaningful connections to mathematics and history, so it is a great way to do extra 'homework' in social skills, maths, history, lieracy, art and confidence building.
