April seems a fitting time to discuss how the support of governments (both local and national) through taxes provides family historians with a wealth of records to use in our one-place studies. Once you learn about all the various types of taxes (and all those records created by the tax man) you will say "*Thank Goodness for Taxes*." Please join the Society on Friday April 25th at 8:00 pm London time as we discuss tax records through the years. 

Just a reminder that the time for our hangout should show in your Google Event notice in your local timezone (or at least the timezone on your computer). As a assist the times are
  8:00 pm London, ENG  time 
12:00 pm pacific time USA
  1:00 pm mountain time USA
  2:00 pm central time USA
  3:00 pm eastern time USA
If you want to check the timezone in a place that matters to you, why not check out www.worldtimebuddy.com.

If you respond YES or MAYBE and you have selected it in your Google settings, our Society Hangout will show up in your Google calendar and you will receive a reminder notice one day before the hangout. Please consider JOINing us in the panel on Friday - include a comment that you want to JOIN and we will send you an invite about 20 minutes before we go live. Otherwise please VIEW our hangout live here at the Event or at our YouTube Channel. And remember if you can't make it live, you can watch the archived recording at our YouTube Channel.

I can't make it to the hang out but will certainly watch the recording of it! I'm very interested in One-Place Studies and hope to to thoroughly research a township in Ohio where my maternal family lived. Looking forward to any help and ideas.

Are you thinking about doing a one-place study? Are you already heavily invested in your one-place study but wondering if you are covering all the bases? Why not join us this Friday for our monthly hangout-on-air where we will discuss tips and suggestions for doing your one-place study. Resources, examples, and stumbling blocks (hopefully with answers to assist you) are all on the table. We hope to see you there with your suggestions or questions.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Society for One-Place Studies. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Great HOA. Sorry I missed it live. I think I've changed my mind about my place and now I need to do more research! Definitely helps to hear what others are thinking about and some of the hurdles involved. Thanks everyone.

Our Society for One-Place Studies' monthly hangout on air is tomorrow (our regular schedule is the 4th Friday of each month). Please take a break from holiday activities and join us for an hour of conversation about holidays and traditions and how they were and are celebrated in your place (and how to research this topic for use with your one-place study). We also want to know what you plan to work on with your one-place study in 2014. We hope to see you at 8:00 pm GMT tomorrow (you should see your local time in the Google+ HOA invitation). Cheers!

Have you ever thought about trying to record the character of your one-place study? Using base maps and community mapping notation, this month's Society HOA will focus on developing a simple method to map one-place communities across the globe. Why not join us as Kirsty Gray introduces us to the concept of community mapping and how to use it with your one-place study.

Hello everyone,

We have been frantically trying to get the on-line hangout set up for this evening. There appears to be a Google issue as all of the committee - UK, to USA and New Zealand are having serious issues connecting.

We have therefore made the decision to POSTPONE today's on-line meeting until next Friday - 31st January at 8pm GMT. An event will be set as soon as we confirm the date.

Sincere apologies and please stay tuned for further announcements.

Thanks. I thought that I was having a problem at my end.

If you saw the event notice posted earlier today then you know that tomorrow's hangout on air is going to cover (1) traditions and holidays in your OPS and (2) your plans for your OPS in 2014. Our hangout on air will be an informal discussion to share our thoughts and learn yours on these two topics. We welcome all those interested in one-place studies. See you tomorrow (and remember you can JOIN the discussion or VIEW in the Community Event or on our Society's YouTube Channel.

The YouTube video is available to view. It was a great discussion and gives us lots to think about and work with whether we already have a OPS or are thinking of formulating one.

Where family history and local history unite!
Introduction

What is the Society for One-Place Studies? We are an organization dedicated to promoting the public understanding of one-place studies. Our Society is made up of individual family historians, local history groups, genealogical or family history societies, and local archives or libraries. Our members are researchers who want to put our ancestors’ lives in the context of the times and the place where they lived.

Our Society brings together those with an interest in one-place studies and those with an interest in local history and family history. Many members register a one-place study and coordinate their research activities with others from that same place, as well as the local historical society or the local genealogy society. However, our Society is not restricted to members who want to register a one-place study. We welcome all those who simply want to learn more about one-place studies and apply it to their own family history research.

What does the Society Do? We work alone or in groups. We connect with fellow family historians about that one-place we study to share information, and acquire additional data and documents. We gather the stories and photographs. We identify the local families. We study their lives by learning about their homes, schools, civic groups, occupations, religious affiliations, their food, culture, and ethnic or racial makeup. We study the past and the present of our one-place.

We put it all together and share it so that our one-place will have its story told and will live on whether its population is large or small, whether it has grown and prospered or has seen its numbers dwindle. A one-place study brings us closer to our ancestors and helps us understand their lives. A one-place study is an opportunity to walk in their footsteps and share their lives with the world.

How Does This Page Work? Our Society is an online/internet based organization. We have a website that includes resources, one-place studies profiles and a blog about one-place studies for members and non-members alike. We also have a number of resources directed to members only. In addition to our website presence, we also have a Facebook page, a Twitter page, and now a Google+ Page and Community. We plan on providing Google+ Hangouts on Air as an opportunity for our worldwide members and all those interested to interact and learn from one-place studies' presentations 

Please follow us here on our Google+ Page and join our Google+ Community. We will keep you in the know about one-place studies, and schedule hangouts on air for presentations and regular meetings - all in an effort to help you learn more about one-place studies, share tools, tips and best practices, get one-on-one assistance and ask other Society members and one-place researchers for expert help.
