What are one place studies?
A one-place-study (OPS) considers your ancestors in their physical and social context.
By learning about your ancestors' neighbours and studying the historical environment and events, big and small, that took place within a village, you can gain a greater understanding of your own genealogy.
Cast a wide net for resources for your one-place study. Records, memorabilia and even buildings may be located in unexpected places, like Glamorgan's Ogmore Vale’s stores now resident at St Fagans.
