Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica


In my article No Luck of the Irish I wrote about how I discovered my Seale family pedigree.  This pedigree was found on page 48 in Volume III of the Fifth Series of Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica published in 1918.








Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica was a quarterly peridoical of Genealogies and Heraldry of Great Britain and Ireland... and so much more, being the miscellanea!  They hold not only family trees, but also monument inscriptions, births, marriages, wills, coats of arms, and notes on some of the people and places. There is not the same type of information for every surname. I was lucky enough to find a family tree with loads of information, but there are no wills or notes for me... darn!


Following are the publications that I could find online, in series and volumes. In the fifth series there are 10 Volumes of which I only found 3.  Check if your local library has them on film, hard copy or digital.

(Note: The date is of publication, the dates of the records go back to 1700's and earlier)
