My Father's Side: The Petty Coat of Arms, Irish Heritage. Motto: Ut Apes Geometriam, which means: As Bees Geometry (This phrase is also part of a line from Victor Hugo's Notre-Dame de Paris, "I possess philosophy by instinct, by nature, ut apes geometriam.") The Petty side of my family came to the U.S. in the 1600s.
