22nd March 2006 We have now added a new Members Only Forum. This has been launched ahead of schedule and is in response to requests from a number of our registrants who expressed a wish to enjoy each others fellowship. The initial request was simply to include email addresses on each page so that one could contact the other but being fully aware that publishing these addresses on the web almost inevitable leads to increases in unwelcome spam it was decided by our web master, John, that the easiest and safest way to achieve such contact and fellowship was to create a forum for the exclusive use of registrants.

The Forum is now active and those whose arms are included in the International Armorial Register or as a courtesy the American College of Arms click here link to gain access to it.
15th March 2006 The Register is pleased to announce its new Armorial Newsletter to be launched shortly.

We are pleased to invite everyone to sign up to the newsletter, regardless of their armigerous status or whether they are included within the pages of the Armorial.
