One-Place Studies to expand world-wide

News come to us that the One-Place Studies, a charitable organisation founded in 2013 by dedicated family and local historians, is looking for members world-wide.

Members will have an interest in one particular place, whether it is a street, village, hamlet or town.

Is anyone in Canada is involved with One-Place Studies? If you are, can you let us know of the place that you are studying?
