The founding Mission of the American Branch of the School of Genealogy, Heraldry, and Documentary Sciences is to provide the opportunity for genealogists, family historians, archivists, librarians and teachers and other professionals to develop further and higher level knowledge and skills in the foundational structures of genealogical research and underlying theoretical anthropological kinship foundations in genealogy, history of heraldry, chivalry, ethnic culture, family, and in anthropological studies.
The School’s purpose is also to provide an array of certificates, diplomas and postgraduate diplomas relating to how pedagogy (the art, science, or profession of teaching) both practical and theory, relates to a better understanding of the aforementioned disciplines.
The underlying commitment of the founders is to provide an opportunity for the study of genealogy at a higher level of skills intended for increasing career opportunities in government, business, education and legal enterprises. It is understood that such will be a time-consuming process as the field of professional genealogy has yet to secure the agreed upon professional standards which are necessary in any career profession.
Founded in 2010, the School is listed with the Mississippi Proprietary Schools and Colleges, however the School is exempt from registration under 1972 legal code 75-60-5 (e)&(j).
The physical resources include a 3000 sq. ft. Victorian structure, consisting of waiting room, two offices, boardroom, kitchen and restrooms. The personnel include: president, vice-president, chancellor, vice-chancellor, finance officer, Equal Opportunity Officer, legal advisor and ten faculty members.
