I would like to know how I might get in touch with the SANSON INSTITUTE of HERALDRY. I have a photo copy of their CERTIFICATE of AUTHENTICITY for my Coat of Arms, and would like very much to have a true copy of the Family COAT of ARMS. The photo copy does not give an address of any kind.

Internet searches show that The Sanson Institute of Heraldry is in Boston, Mass. I've searched the Boston phone listings but haven't found any listing for them. Hope this is a little help. Good luck.

I have a certificate of Authenticity from the Sanson Institute of Heraldry date 1977. I was hoping to reach the company for a duplicate copy. Is the company sill in business?

The way I understand it, to truly find your coat of arms you actually need to find an ancestor who actually used that particular coat of arms. This could be on a gravestone, document, perhaps an engraving on a building where your ancestor lived. I somehow doubt that a company who issues certificates is somehow authentic. They may simply do a surname search, it doesn't necessarily follow that there is an actual relation.

Thanks for the information, I don't think I'll ever get a true copy of my coat of arms.

If you would like help in finding your coat of arms of a family member I will try to help you. I would like to see what the Sanson Institute sent you. Can you scan it and send it to me at armando348@yahoo.com.

Hi. I realize this message may come a little late, but I too was just given an interesting gift. My aunt gave me a lead crystal glass from my late grandfather that contains our family's coat-of-arms. It contained some papers from the Sanson Institute of Heraldry.

In googling it I came across this post, but I also found something else that may be of interest to someone. There is an article in Time magazine that you should read. Here is the link:

I hope the link works. You may be sadly disappointed (as was I).
