Family Tree magazine and Pharos promotion

I've just obtained a copy of the latest Family Tree magazine, and thought I'd help give a plug to a promotion it is running. The magazine has teamed up with Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Limited to provide a free complimentary family history lesson on Liz Carter's course "Parish registers" at the end of February. The lesson needs to be registered for by February 15th - full details on how to do so are in the current issue.

I'm one of the tutors for Pharos, which provides a range of courses on all sorts of subjects, in my case teaching two Scottish based courses originally written by Canadian based genie Sherry Irvine. Details of the course programme for 2013 can be found online at The courses typically last from two to five weeks dependant on the subject, and there are opportunities for live chat room based discussions and a dedicated forum for each throughout the run of the lessons.

Full details on how Pharos operates can be found at the main website at - and for those interested in the Scottish side of things, my first course this year will be Scottish Research Online from March 13th. Hopefully see a few of you there!

(And if you do pick up the latest Family Tree, check out my article on the records you use to get underway with your research - do you really understand what they are, and how they were created?!)
