Question by  pcguy (307)

How do you figure out the ancestry of your surname?

I've seen family crests created based on research and I wonder what the source is.

Tracing back your surname itself is easy; just use any of several publicly available free genealogy sites (Family Search and Ancestry dot com for example). You will be able to look yourself up and possibly trace your own specific name back through time. Even if you can't find your specific line, there should be many similar lines to trace.
