11/26/2015 12:45 AM There's no such thing as a "family coat of arms". Arms were (and are) awarded to individuals, and they're passed down according to very specific rules of inheritance. These vary from country to country, but in most places only the eldest son inherits the arms. Having the same family name as the one attached to a particular picture is totally and completely irrelevant; lots of unrelated people have the same surnames, and sometimes the current bearer of a coat of arms has a different name than the ancestor who first received it.
