It is a solemn matter to appoint a Herald to your household, for he will be with you, assuming your need for him continues, forever after. His presence alone can turn a simple sandwich into a solemn banquet. Never take a Herald on a picnic. (The Book of Weird)
I'm an Academic Herald. I'm not a "real" herald; I don't register people's coats of arms (though I can certainly suggest designs for those who might be interested). What I do is study, research, teach, and write about heraldry. And I like to share what I have learned about heraldry, hence this blog. I hope that you'll find it informative, interesting at least occasionally, and worth your time to come back. Got a question? Comments? Feel free to let me know. I'd love to hear from you. You can find my contact information in my Profile.
I'm Giving a Presentation on Heraldry to Genealogists, and You Can Attend
A little while ago, I was asked by the Georgia Genealogical Society if I would give my presentation An Introduction to Heraldry for Genealogists via webinar for them. I, of course, said I would be honored to do so, and as a result, on Thursday, December 12, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time I will be doing just that.
The webinar is open on-line live to the first 500 people, regardless of whether or not they are members of the GGS. (The webinar is recorded and will be posted in the Members Only section of the GGS, along with copies of the handouts.)
