Biographical or historical data
The Order of Americans of Armorial Ancestry was organized on 15 September 1903 and was incorporated in the State of New York on 30 December 1903. The organization was founded by Mrs. William Gerry Slade. The objectives of the organization 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. Members are descended from an immigrant ancestor who settled on or before 4 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.
