One Place Studies

Are you undertaking a one-place-study and haven't spoken (emailed/posted) to me about this in the last moonth?

I am taking over maintaining the One Place Study Index (currently found on John Palmer's Wirksworth site) and giving it its own website. Along with the index of studies will be articles and networking opportunities to help out those of us working on a one-place-study. The existing Index is getting a big revamp as part of this as many sites/emails have changed and there are many more out there to discover, so please do get in touch if you'd like to be listed.

The new website should be live in early November and I'll be sure to show her off to you then!

Many colours of the rainbow

Inspired by Sussex boy John over at The Wandering Genealogist, I present a statistical representation of the birthplaces of my 3xgreat-grandparents.

It makes for a particularly unattractive graph colour-wise, no? Nonetheless, I shall embrace my diversity, as it turns out not every road leads to Buckinghamshire.

Still here

I am still here, just being very quiet. I'm hard at work on a new one-place-study-related project - see you in November!

October update

It's poll month this month! The Wing folk from the 1831 Buckinghamshire poll have been added, along with Wing residents who owned land and voted in the 1807 Bedfordshire poll. I've also expanded the 1784 Buckinghamshire poll entries so you can see who everyone voted for. Enjoy!
