Pharos Tutors specialise in online learning for family historians. Our teachers are professional genealogists with many decades of teaching experience. Pharos was founded in 2006 by Helen Osborn and Sherry Irvine, two of the world’s leading experts in teaching genealogy courses online.

The aim of this blog is to promote the very best and most thoughtful writing on topics of interest to serious genealogists. If you are wanting something more than just the run of the mill article on family history, then this blog is for you.

You will find here discussions about genealogy education, genealogy research, the practical art and craft of family history, as well as other related topics as the mood takes us.

Why Pharos?  Because the Pharos lighthouse in Alexandria was one of the eight wonders of the ancient world, and at Pharos Tutors we aim to be a guiding light in the genealogy world.

You can get involved here as well.  Read the posts, make comments and contribute to the discussions.  Together we can advance our knowledge.

At the moment all comments are moderated.  This means that you may have to wait a little while before your comment shows.
