Pro Heraldica (USA)

Recently I have joined forces with Pro Heraldica (USA), a sister company of the Pro Heraldica (Europe)… The idea was to combine my unique style of artwork with their huge customer base and industry experience, and being able to offer new 21st century generation of heraldry images, complimenting the traditional approach.

After 40 successful years serving families in Europe, PRO HERALDICA has launched a new United States company in San Diego, California. Entrusted with the largest private genealogy and heraldry library in the world, PRO HERALDICA has been researching family histories as well as tracing and creating coats of arms for decades. With over 50 employees and an auxiliary group of 300 researchers, projects are run at the highest level of timeliness and professionalism, delivering results beyond any other group of genealogy and heraldry experts worldwide.

The internet and recent popularity of the television show, Who Do You Think You Are?, have brought genealogy to the forefront of American minds which has inspired people to learn more about their own family history. PRO HERALDICA provides the professional research required to truly delve into and capture all of the necessary elements that create a family history. Greg Flores, Chief Executive Officer, says, “PRO HERALDICA’s research is done by our team of ‘family history detectives,’ who can find and interpret the actual historical documents onsite where the families lived and worked. Each family research project is unique and has to be accurately documented and validated before it can be incorporated into a family history.”

According to the PRO HERALDICA, GmbH Owner and Managing Director Harald Heimbach, “In this era of changes, fast living, internet, and globalization, we need values that will survive the times. PRO HERALDICA is committed to providing American families with the expertise necessary to capture their family legacy with the highest quality work in genealogy and heraldry.”

Below you can find some of my initial works I have completed for them, including the Pro Heraldica (USA) coat of arms at the beginning of this article.
