A One Place Study involves dissecting a small, definable, geographical area, to examine the individuals, buildings and processes of the past, in as much detail as possible. Out ancestors did not live in isolation. To understand these ancestors, they need to be 'put in their place' by investigating the community of which they were a part. A One Place Study brings family and local history together, to the benefit of both fields.Ranging from how to choose your place, through locating sources, collating and interpreting your data, to publishing your findings; this book is suitable for experienced researchers as well as those new to One Place Studies. Although sources are described, it is not primarily about the sources themselves. The emphasis is on how these records might be used and over thirty mini-projects for the one place researcher are suggested. Although the sources described apply primarily to One Place Studies in England and Wales, many of the techniques and suggestions are relevant to those whose places are elsewhere.
