The book, "Matthew's American Armoury and Blue Book," by John Matthews, printed by the Gorham Co., New York & London, 1907. Do you have Blue Sap (blood) in your family tree? This book provides significant genealogical data about a large number of American 'blue bloods' as of 1907. What is useful is that the data usually traces lineage back to the immigrant ancestor, thus helping a great many people today. There are many, many surnames and many allied families mentioned. Please note: This is not a paper book, it is a scan of the original paper book into the digital Adobe PDF format, written on a CD-ROM. You read this book on your computer using the free Adobe Reader software. It is a digital version of a hard to find book. If you could find a copy of the 1907 printed book, it would be very expensive.



This CD book is fully linked for ease of use, and is fully searchable in the Adobe Reader. There are two sections in the book. The first section has a comprehensive entry listing a lot of information about the individual’s ancestry, his family, and biographical information about the person (clubs, organizations, residences, etc). The second ‘Addendum’ provides fewer data about the individuals listed, but usually gives the year the person moved to America and where they settled. Both sections provide a black & white drawing of the Arms associated with the individual’s family and their description in heraldic terms (please see the images below for examples).

The book has approximately 318 pages plus the index. Remember, it is a direct scan of the original book converted into Adobe PDF format and written on a CD-ROM. It is not a paper book. You read it using the free Adobe Reader software and it can be searched using the ‘Search’ function of the reader.

The following individuals are listed in the first section with their ancestors, spouse’s ancestry (in some cases), and children’s names, etc. Each individual’s Coat of Arms is illustrated:
