About the Committee on Heraldry of NEHGS
The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic Genealogical Society is the oldest non-governmental heraldic body in the world. The Committee was established in 1864 within the New England Historic Genealogical Society, to “collect and preserve information in regard to heraldry.” The Committee’s heraldic interests are national in scope, embracing the use of heraldry and coats of arms throughout the current United States and all its colonial predecessors.
