Exploring upcoming Pharos courses

Sherry Irvine and Helen Osborn from Pharos Teaching and Tutoring, the UK-based online genealogical education service, are speakers at the BIFHSGO conference, 16 – 18 September 2011. If, like me, you're not very familiar with Pharos and their offerings you may like to know about the courses they have getting underway in the next month.

Starting on 3 August is "Enclosure Maps and Records for Family Historians" by Liz Carter. It's a four-week course and aimed at more advanced students as indicated by its 300 level course number.

"Your Military Ancestors" is a 200 [intermediate] level course taught by Simon Fowler, well known as editor of the late lamented TNA Ancestors magazine. This four-week course starts on 15 August.

Starting on 29 August is a five week 100 level course, aimed at beginners in Scottish family history "Scottish Research Online." The instructor is fellow family history blogger, author and regular magazine contributor Chris Paton.
