We dropped in to The Name Tree while visiting Niagara On The Lake in November. Not knowing really what the store was all about, Peter explained why there was a Coat of Arms and Family Crest registered to our name and explained our Family History to us. We walked out with a Family History and Coat of Arms for both of our names and with a knowledge now of "heraldry" that we never had before. Thank you, Peter, for being so friendly and knowledgeable. We will tell our family and friends about your store.
Thanks Peter for showing me the history of my family name and explaining the coat of arms. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to your store and the Double Embroidery we purchased is proudly displayed in our home. Best regards,
