Under what particular heraldic authority have they had a Coat of Arms granted? They do realize that there is no such thing as a family coat of arms, right? Arms are granted to an individual and then passed own through the family line to heirs, but not the family as a whole. I thought (but could be wrong) that generally the person would normally work with the college they are registering with on their arms.
