Over the course of April we are exploring the studies registered with the Society for One-Place Studies featuring those that correspond to the relevant letter of the alphabet.

What is a One Place Study? That is a fine question and rather than me explain, I will refer you to the Society’s informative website. If you are interested in joining us and /or registering a study we of course welcome you. You can find the joining information HERE.

L is for...

Llangiwg: For this study, we head across the border into Wales to our first Wales based study. Situated in Glamorgan, the parish of Llangiwg is a mostly rural area that has seen the effects of coal mining and industrialisation. This study is registered with the Society for One-Place Studies. The study holder has linked to the FamilySearch Wiki for more information on the parish. It is an interesting parish with a huge amount of scope within the non-conformity sector. Why not contact Darris if your ancestors hailed from this parish?

Llangiwg Parish Church

Luffincott: For this parish we head back to Devon, to a remote parish on the Cornwall border. Registered with the Society for One-Place Studies, this parish is one of the Society's smallest with a population of around 50. The church has many tablets, stones and windows in memorial to the residents of the village over the centuries but was declared redundant in 1975 and is now vested in The Churches Conservation Trust. If your ancestors hailed from this parish, do drop Kirsty an email.
