Much better for searching as you can search a parish and surrounding area. There are limitations but I have just done a quick surname search with this on and the soundex on and it found most of those I knew about. Some parishes have no coverage or very little but it is a great place to start.

The In-Depth report can provide a solid overview about your place so that interested parties can learn more about both the place and your study before contacting you with specific queries about their family or any other questions about your place. If you are just beginning your study, you may find this helpful as guidance on useful information to collate early on.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Society for One-Place Studies. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

This month we check in with our 2014 Joint Project - A Shared Endeavour: World War I. We are going to focus on the impact of the war on our servicemen and communities and discuss how military records and other written accounts can help us gain a better understanding of the toll the war took on the physical, emotional, and financial well-being of everyone involved.

Please come prepared to share what the service records for your servicemen reveal (or perhaps just hint at) about their physical and mental experiences. We are quite excited to announce that we have a special guest for our May hangout - Suzie Grogan is a writer and family historian specialising in mental health issues, and her book, Shell Shocked Britain, is due out October  2014 (http://www.suziegrogan.co.uk/).

Please join us on a special day for this hangout - May 30th. If you would like to be "in the room" as a JOINer, be sure to post a comment here in the Upcoming Event comments section. You can also interact with us as a VIEWer and watch here in the Upcoming Event link by clicking on the arrow once we start the broadcast.

If you cannot make it live, no worries - as our hangouts are recorded and archived at the Society's YouTube Channel. Hope to see you on Friday May 30th. Why not go ahead and start the conversation now by placing any comments or questions you have for Suzie here.

This Saturday (that's tomorrow) is the inaugural Conference/AGM of the Society for One-Place Studies. Many one-place studiers (some members of the Society and some simply interested family historians) will be at the Telford Innovation Conference Centre to hear guest lecturers Phil Tomaselli and Kate Tiller present during the event. In keeping with our 2014 Shared Endeavour project, the theme is "The effect of World War One on communities across the globe."

More information is available at the Society's website. The conference will be streamed live and available on the Society's YouTube channel. Thanks to all those Society Committee members who worked so hard on the planning of what looks to be a great conference.

We are aware that the sound isn't great on the Livestream. Apologies. We do have really good quality recordings. Thanks for your perseverance and sorry it's not ideal in the sound department.

June is the most popular month for weddings so we thought what better time to talk about marriages in connection with our one-place studies. This month Janet Few will present on the history, the resources and the records connected with marriages (and marriage like relationships). We will learn what is out there, where to find it, how to use it and how records and resources have changed over time. Then the discussion will be wide open to share information about records in your "place" and to ask questions. Join us on Friday for our monthly hangout.

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.
