Logo of IGHSC   The Italian Genealogy and Heraldry Society of Canada was established in 1992 by Flavio Andreatta, Dino Coletti and Daniel Marcuz in Windsor. The society, a volunteer-run Canadian-registered charity, has grown over the years, providing much help to individuals researching Italian and European ancestry, genealogy and heraldry (coats of arms). The society also offers translation services, European history lectures, cultural programs, services for seniors and immigrants, knighting ceremonies – as well as assistance with editing, publishing, and research(*) . Monthly meetings and lectures are open to the public.

The society operates the following groups: the Centre for European Studies, the Gruppo Savoia del Canada (The Savoy Group of Canada), the Italian Cultural Centre of Canada, the Order of the Gruppo Savoia del Canada, the Order of the Roman Imperial Eagle, and the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ.

In response to a request from the Italian Genealogy and Heraldry Society of Canada, Mayor Eddie Francis proclaimed September 10-16, 2007 Italian and European Ancestry Week in the City of Windsor. During this week the society commemorated its 15th anniversary with a cultural gala banquet and exposition. The highlight of this event was a knighting ceremony where distinguished members and local citizens were honoured for their outstanding service to their community.

(*)The society offers the largest research library of its type outside of Italy.
