Where family history and local history unite.
Lyn McCulloch has registered a One Place Study for Comberbach and advised the village Heritage Group that it's for us all to contribute to. Lyn tells us that Comberbach is leading Cheshire by being the first community to register with this new world-wide society.
Whilst networking with other family historians the originators of this new website realised that there was an increasing interest in the study of particular streets, villages and other specific areas and that the time was right to further consider the notion of forming a society. Discussions swiftly developed from ideas into a concept and led to a team of enthusiastic, diligent individuals coming together to create the Society for One-Place Studies.
Set up as a not-for-profit organisation, the Society was launched in September 2013 with a new website building on the experience and expertise of those involved in promoting one-place studies, thus laying the foundations for a society that will support and encourage those engaged in this particular form of research.
