In 2009, the President of the American College of Genealogy, Heraldry and Documentary Sciences and the Founder/President of the School of Genealogy, Heraldry and Documentary Sciences in Bologna, Italy were keenly aware that American genealogists would appreciate developing skills and understanding in higher education, the social sciences and scientific studies (soft and hard sciences) as they relate to genealogy.
This school is not only meant for the investigation of technical skills, like some American endeavours which lead to CG and AG qualifications but rather with initial elementary vocational and technical training (our certificate program) and more importantly the development of higher educational skills, research in the hard and soft sciences, interdisciplinary studies and the nexus of certain genealogical research and their matrix development with social and scientific development.
In the late 1800's and early 1900's genealogy was considered a science but only recently (last 100 years became more of a vocation similar to basketweaving and flower-arranging. This was because many potential genealogy researchers lacked the education or scholarship to enter the program at a higher level. It is the American College's intent to change this devolution in genealogical study. Read White Paper

Thus, the future Chancellor, Dr. Pier Felice degli Uberti, and the President of the American School, Dr. Carl Edwin Lindgren, discussed the building of this American College for American and international students
Dr. LaWanna Lease Blount, living in Texas, after formerly teaching in Australia, Libya, Venezuela, moved to Como to take over the activities of Vice President and curriculum instruction design.
She worked with the President to develop its foundational curriculum and the school was born. A committed faculty has been formed to usher in this unique program in the United States. All faculty members possess accredited degrees (e.g. master degrees or doctorates) in history, pedagogic, curriculum and instruction, law and the social sciences (documentary sciences) as well as an extensive practical and theoretical background in genealogy, chivalry and heraldry.

WE WILL ASSIST ENROLLED STUDENTS AND FACULTY IN OBTAINING GRANTS.
We are currently engaged in writing several grant proposals and provide free services to individuals attempting to find professional genealogists, heralds and heraldic artists. The American School is a member of the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
Our program, educational training and research is geared toward the American student, but is taken by students internationally..Note our Center Accreditation website of the College of Teachers, UK. As a nonprofit academic and educational corporation, we also conduct research in genealogy, family history, heraldry and documentary sciences.
The founding Mission of the American School 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 theoretica historical andl 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.
