  1. Day course in heraldry

    Are you interested in Heraldry? Perhaps you would like to know more about how to research families who had a coat of arms, and the sources in which they can be found? And how to identify a coat of arms?

    Our day course in heraldry is running next 4th March, so why not get it in the diary early. Run by our Principal and heraldic expert Dr Richard Baker, this is one of our most popular courses and always proves to be an interesting day.  Booking details and further information can be found here.

  2. What is the meaning of our company name?

    Our company name, Achievements, which we have been known by for more than half a century was devised as a play on words.

    Every family tree that we produce is the result of thoughtful analysis, careful planning and meticulous research. Each and every one is indeed an achievement!

    But the word “achievement” has another meaning, too. Achievements was constituted as the research arm of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies – and heraldry is implied in our title, for an achievement is the proper term for a display of the coat of arms together with all the other heraldic accoutrements of an armigerous gentleman.

    So, our name Achievements connotes in a single word both of our principal research activities.
