O is for One-Place Studies, of course! Here are some top resources for learning more about the world of one-place studies, in order of geographical distance:

Stay right where you are and keep reading this blog – you'll find regular posts about the field of one-place studies and topics dear to the heart of one-place studiers. Don't worry, we don't always post as frequently as during April when the A-Z Blogging Challenge spurs us into near-daily action, but each week you can learn a little more about one-place studies from our blog. Add us into your favourite blog RSS reader or subscribe via email (there's a lovely brown button at the top of the blog for this) so you don't miss a post.

Meander up to that menu bar there and visit the rest of the Society for One-Place Studies website. You can learn more about us and what we do, what we offer members, and read our Articles section. Then head to our YouTube channel to watch videos with fellow one-place studiers.

Next, curl up on your couch with your freshly-acquired copy of Putting your Ancestors in their Place: a guide to one place studies by Dr Janet Few. Janet's currently the Chair of the Society and boy, does she know her stuff! This book was published in 2014 so is right up to date and has a ton of information and ideas about undertaking a one-place study. For more info and to order the book visit Janet’s website at https://thehistoryinterpreter.wordpress.com/publications/.

Where in the world would you like to learn about? Find websites for one-place studies in your region of interest by checking out the Studies section of the Society's website. For example, you can visit my study page about Wing in Buckinghamshire at http://one-place-studies.org/europe/england/buckinghamshire/wing/ (a very quick read) then my study's website at http://www.wing-ops.org.uk/ (much much more to see). Get out there, see the world online and learn about one-place studies by seeing a study in action.
