The Cambridge University Heraldic and Genealogical Society was formed as the result of the merger in 1957 of a previous society of the same name (founded 1950) with the Cambridge University Society of Genealogists (founded 1954). Four speaker meetings are held in each of the Michaelmas and Lent terms and a further two at the beginning of the Easter term. These are in the general area of heraldry and genealogy but also include cognate subjects such as ceremonial dress, tartan, local history, customs, military medals or indeed anything of an antiquarian nature. Our talks are typically preceded by a formal hall with the evening's speaker.

Do send the committee an email, if you are interested in joining arguably the most civilised student society of the University.
