Celia Heritage joins Pharos Tutors

I'm delighted to say that Celia Heritage is joining us on the Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Limited ( tutorial team. Here's the official word from the latest Pharos newsletter:

We are welcoming a new tutor to the Pharos team! Celia Heritage, as well as having a very appropriate name, comes to us with over 25 years of experience in family history.

Celia is a regular lecturer at the Society of Genealogists in London, Canterbury Cathedral Archives and the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies in Canterbury. She could also be heard speaking at this year’s Who Do You Think You Are? at Olympia, where she lectured and took part in expert advice sessions.
Celia is quite a media star as a regular contributor to family history magazines and radio shows, so we are delighted she is also finding the time to join the Pharos team of tutors!

We’ll publish details of Celia’s course shortly, but can reveal it will be based around local history. Celia will also be helping us to develop some further courses.

To learn more about Celia, take a look at her website at:

I had the pleasure of having a meal with Celia and a few other genies recently in London at the Who Do You Think You Are? Live event, and without a doubt I can say that we were all equally astounded that she has single handedly cornered the market on genealogically appropriate surnames!

A top genie with bags of experience - keep an eye on for more news soon on Celia's courses, but also to check out other course offerings from Sherry Irvine (Ireland and migration), Helen Osborn (one name studies and professional genealogy), Gill Blanchard (various), Jeremy Palmer (Australian), Simon Fowler (military), Guy Crannum (Caribbean and TNA), Hannah Baker (get the kids involved), Barbara Baker (FamilySearch), Chris Pomery (DNA), Brian Drescher (wring family history), Ruth Davies (old handwriting), Liz Carter (various) and some wee shug from Largs going by the name of Paton (Scotland)!
