  1. Celebrations of achievement at IHGS Awards Day

    Saturday 30th July saw the rain hold off enough long enough for a lovely lunchtime and early afternoon of presentations to successful candidates who had taken the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies examinations.  These included the Certificate, Higher Certificate and Diploma in Genealogy.  As well as this, the prestigious Bickersteth Medal was awarded to Elizabeth Roads, in honour of her distinguished career in heraldry in Scotland.  She is Lyon Clerk and Keeper of the Records of the Court of the Lord Lyon, and further information on the awarding of this Medal can be found here.

    A selection of photographs illustrates the wonderful day which was had by all.

  2. Awards Day 2016

    All of us here at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies and Achievements are looking forward to this Saturday, and celebrating the achievements of our students at Awards Day.  Students have studied an intensive programme of family history to pass various exams, and this is their well-deserved recognition.

    The weather forecast remains humid, with possible showers, so lets keep our fingers crossed it remains dry for the afternoon!
