renaissance-clothing-1450-1550  Symbol to indicate a woman who lived in England 1430-1550.   The symbol was titled Renaissance Clothing 1430-1550 but I think it shows much more about that time period in history.  I found the symbol with respect to my 14th Great Grandmother Ann Clapp who lived from 1455-1500.  I like the image.

symbol-earls-or-barons  Symbol to indicate an ancestor was an Earl or a Baron

Interesting to find in my search for ancestors on ancestry.com – e.g. my 19th Great Grandfather Sir Thomas Howland/Holland 1383-1460
