  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. Military Records day course

    Most of us will have ancestors who served in the armed forces at some time, and military records can provide information not only into your ancestor’s life whilst in the military but can also give essential genealogical information to help extend your family tree.

    Our sister organisation, the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, is holding a day course entitled “Military Records – Army, RAF and Royal Navy” on Monday 23rd April at our headquarters in Canterbury.  The course will cover the 18th to 21st centuries and will discuss both online and original sources. The day will be led by Les Mitchinson, IHGS Director of Education and Vice Chair of AGRA.
