    This is a wonderful and historic release of information to help research your Native American ancestors.

    I couldn't wait to dig in and start searching.  I've researched many indexes before but so far I can't find the ancestor I'm seeking to connect to my Wann or Higgins or Pennington families.

     

    I'll be searching these records late into the night.  Wish me luck!

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
