There is an overview of the new on-line exhibition at the Folger Shakespeare Library entitled Symbols of Honor: Heraldry and Family History, uploaded to the Library’s website in conjunction with the Symbols of Honor: Heraldry and Family History in Shakespeare's England, being held at the Library through October 26 of this year. The links on that page go to separate sections, the whole forming the on-line exhibition.
The individual sections of this on-line exhibit include:
The Medieval Heritage
The Order of the Garter and The Garter King of Arms
Tournaments and Armor
Grants of Arms
Shakespeare's Grant of Arms
The Business of Heraldry
Badges, Mottoes, and Imprese

You can find the Overview of this on-line exhibition on the Folger Shakespeare Library’s website at http://www.folger.edu/Content/Whats-On/Folger-Exhibitions/Symbols-of-Honor-Heraldry-and-Family-History-/Online-Exhibition/ and you can learn more about the Heraldry and Family History in Shakespeare's England exhibit there at http://www.folger.edu/Content/Whats-On/Folger-Exhibitions/Symbols-of-Honor-Heraldry-and-Family-History-/
There’s a bunch of other stuff of interest to heraldry enthusiasts on the site as well, and I think you’ll find it is well worth the time to click through and take a look.
