We are the Society for
One-Place Studies
Where local history and family history unite

A One-Place Study considers people and families in their physical and social context in any location across the globe. This could cover any area including a town, village, suburb, estate, a single street, or even an individual building. 

By learning about your ancestors’ neighbours and studying the historical environment and events that took place within a Place, you can better understand your own history.

The Society supports and promotes Studies and their owners, and educates the public about the benefits of running One-Place Studies. We welcome Members from across the world.

There are many benefits of joining the Society, including our quarterly Journal, Destinations, regular events, valuable resources and member-exclusive offers.

The Society for One-Place Studies is a leading organisation dedicated to supporting One-Placers worldwide.
