JUST 5 MORE DAYS until Who Do You Think You Are? Live kicks off at Birmingham's NEC on 7-9 April!

We're counting down with seven of the best family history experts, who are each presenting lectures at the show. We've already smashed brickwalls with Mary Evans and explored Birmingham with Mike Sharpe, so today we're tracing our family trees further back in time with Celia Heritage.

Professional genealogist Celia Heritage runs The Heritage Family History e-Course, an in-depth, online course aimed at those with English and Welsh ancestors.  She is the author of Tracing Your Ancestors Through Death Records and Researching and Locating your Ancestors.

In Family Tree's March 2014 issue Celia showed us how to use probate inventories and explained what these records could add to our family history research. Read the full article now by clicking on the link below:
