Places of our Families

Some family history enthusiasts have also taken up One Place Studies, which, on first glance, seems a little like a hybrid of Family History and Local History…. from their website

By learning about your ancestors’ neighbours and studying the historical environment and events that took place within a village, you can gain a greater understanding of your own genealogy. An OPS researches the residents of a particular place by gathering a full range of historical records, memorabilia and stories that mention those individuals, and analyse them to gain insights into the social and economic workings of that place.
