The Dye Coat of Arms

dye coat of arms

This Coat of Arms is obviously a fake, but it looks nice. My daughter, Allison gave it to me as a Christmas present in 2002. The Dyes in my family tree are not related to the ones who came to America from England but are decedents of the original immigrant Laurens Duyts who came to America from Holstein, Denmark, now a part of Germany. The Duyts surname was later changed to Dey, and then even later, to Dye.

Please notify me of any errors or omissions. I would appreciate hearing from anyone having any of the missing dates. —Thanks, Brad Dye.
