      write them giving all the information that you have, and requesting
      that they make a search for you, and for a reasonable fee based on
      the time involved, they will attempt to solve your problem. For
      amorial handpainted parchments, plaques, wallshields, and other
      commercial items associated with Irish heraldry, you can write to
