Heller Family Genealogy
Heller is a nickname from the small medieval coin known as the häller (or heller) because it was first minted (in 1208) at the Swabian town of (Schwäbisch) Hall. The family Coat of Arms features a blue shield with a red fess bordered gold between two gold lions passant. The Crest is a blue wing.
