Order of Americans of Armorial Ancestry

The objectives of the Order of Americans of Armorial Ancestry are to promote genealogical, biographical, and historical research with emphasis on the ancestry of American families of armorial descent and as far as possible the publication of results stemming from such research.

The Order of Americans of Armorial Ancestry is the only order based upon the right to bear arms as a qualification for membership.

Any person aged eighteen or over, of good moral character and reputation is eligible for membership in the Order provided the candidates prove descent from an immigrant ancestor who settled on or before 04 July 1776 within a territory that became the forty-eight contiguous states of the United States of America and who had a proven right to bear arms in the settler’s country of origin.
