Re the Augustan Society--they're an honourable bunch, with excellent
research facilities in all of the mentioned areas.  Used to be located
in Torrance, CA, but in recent years, thanks to a handsome bequest
from a member, have been able to move to a desert location, where they
have been able to expand their library facilities.  Many Americans and
not a few Canadians and Europeans have been able to use their
resources to further their knowledge and interest in things
genealogical, heraldic, and chivalric.  If you're into any of the
above-named topics, they could prove a very useful and enjoyable
