Surname Uranzu, coat of arms and parallel blazons

Although I am not sure of the reality of this coat of arms, I have made a) in Spanish a simplification and b) its translation in parallel to English. I assume that in the 2nd flag the Fleurs de lys in triangle are 3 and they are ordered. Although I am not sure of the reality of this busy coat of arms, I can't found a painted version, I have made a) a simplification of its Spanish blazon and b) its translation in parallel to English. I assume that in the 2nd flag the Fleurs de lys in triangle are 3 and they are ordered. The colors of the text in the images lets an easy reading and show the blazon structure. There are in this coat of arms 1+9+7+5+1 = 23 ships.

Currently the National Institute of Statistics of Spain (I. N. E.), about the surname «Uranzu» answer that «there are no inhabitants with the surname consulted», neither 1st nor 2nd surname, «or its frequency is less than 5 for the national total».

Pedigree collapse, we are all cousins

Pedigree collapse by years, world's populations and ancestors

We have 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great grandparents, 16 great grandparents,... growing exponentially (2n), 32, 64, 128, ... Circa the year 850 we have more «theoretical» ancestors than inhabitants of the world. It follows that:

  • Many of our ancestors are repeated in our family tree.
  • Many historical figures (philosophers, scientists, writers, artists, kings, warriors, etc.) will appear in our family tree.
  • We share many ancestors with others, we are all cousins, we are a great family.

I have painted the following graphic to show this idea. Traveling to the past we see the number of our «theoretical» ancestors grows and the world's population decreases.

The graph is calculated with 2.46 generations per century, and with other rates although the graph changes but the previous conclusions remain. For example, with 4 generations per century, more real rate time ago when we had children at an earlier age, the curves intersect before. If it is done by continents and/or adding the lines without offspring, the high infant mortality and pests of past times,... the curves also cross before.

To this effect is called «pedigree collapse».
