The Academia Mexicana de Genealogía y Heráldica (Mexican Academy of Genealogy and Heraldry) is a cultural institution based in Mexico City, Mexico.[1] It has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent historians, enthusiasts in the Genealogical and Heraldic Sciences whose purpose is to promote the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the after mentioned sciences through research, essays, colloquiums, courses, exhibitions, education and debate.

History[edit]

The Academia Mexicana de Genealogía y Heráldica has its origin in the Academia Hispanoamericana de Genealogía y Herádica, established in Mexico City in 1921 by José Ignacio Dávila Garibi; with a difficult beginning, the institution had to be reorganized in 1941 but without much success.[2]

Finally, on 15 May 1943 the Academia Mexicana de Genealogía y Heráldica[1][3] was founded by José Ignacio Dávila Garibi[4] with a mission to promote the studies on Genealogy and Heraldry through research, education and exhibition. The motive in founding the Academy was twofold: to raise the professional status of the researcher by establishing a sound system of training and expert judgment in the sciences of Genealogy and Heraldry attaining an appropriate standard of excellence, and to publish some essays in its main publication: Memorias. Behind this concept was the desire to encourage appreciation and interest in the already mentioned sciences.

Fashionable taste in 20th century's fourth decade, Mexico centered on the study of the traditional families and their influence through time. With the passing of time, the Academia Mexicana de Genealogía y Heráldica came to dominate the genealogical and heraldic scene since the second half of the 20th century.

It's the only Mexican institution in the sciences of Genealogy and Heraldry which belongs to the Confédération Internationale de Généalogie et d'Héraldique and to the Confederación Iberoamericana de ciencias Genealógica y Heráldica.[5]

Founding members[edit]

The founding members were five: José Ignacio Dávila Garibi, President; Guilermo Romo Célis, Secretary General;[6] Gonzalo Torres Martínez, Treasurer;[7] Luis García Remus and Manuel Septién y Septién, and allowed for a total membership of 24 Numbered Academicians and some others non-numbered, correspondent and honorary members. The institution was reorganized in 1957.[8][9]
