To get started I think I will tell you why I picked this name. “Going through difficulties”. Genealogy is a hobby of mine and years back when my kids were still at home I was talking to them about family crests. My Oldest son, Brock, decided to do a search on our last name Curtis, to find out if and what kind of crests were out there. He discovered the colors, helmets, swords, and where they are strategically placed, actually tell a story or what is going on with that particular clan. Brock came across a Curtis crest that actually meant going through difficulties. We laughed and joked about this for months to come because that is the story of our lives. I only wish I had saved the website for us.
