Ann Ballard was awarded the Licentiateship for her research on The Heraldry of the Parishes of Marshfield, Cold Ashton, Swainswick and Woolley, Gloucestershire. Ann, who is a tutor with the Correspondence Course in Genealogy and Heraldry, has been working on her thesis for over two years and was praised by the examiners for the quality of her research and presentation. One examiner described it as “… an almost perfect blend of heraldry with genealogy, with each discipline lending support to the other”.
Our congratulations go to Ann on her achievement.
