The newest addition to our Professional Development Certificate is here! Organizing a One-Place Study begins December 7th.
One-place studies are the study of the people in a community within the context of the place they live. Unlike a local history, which focuses on the past as described by residents, a one-place (or community) study uses a statistical approach and resources often used by family historians. Because a one-place study brings family and local history together, various analysis methods can be used to reconstruct the community and gain an insight into the lives of the people who have walked the streets, ploughed the fields, worked and worshipped in a place. This course will suggest ways in which this could be done.
This course will examine the sources of information available to researchers, how to access them (on- and off-line) and the fascinating details which can be uncovered.
