It's (nearly) our birthday! On 1 September we'll be celebrating five years since the Society for One-Place Studies was launched. We wanted to mark the occasion by doing something a little bit special so there's going to be birthday presents - for everyone! Well, not quite everyone, but eight lucky members will win genealogical website subscriptions and books to help them with their one-place study endeavours. You are cordially invited to join us as a member - all paid-up members on 1 September are automatically in the draw, so if you've been thinking about joining, now would be a most excellent time.
Oh, and another thing you are cordially invited to - our conference on 26th and 27th October. There's a visit to the Black Country Living Museum on the Friday, followed by the body of the conference on the Saturday focusing on this year's theme of The Built Heritage Of Your Place. Join us and keynote speaker Gill Blanchard in Dudley, West Midlands - register now and bring a friend or two along too!
