Post subject:  STICKY: What is a One-Place Study?

From The One-Place Studies website:

A one-place-study (OPS) considers your ancestors in their physical and social context.

By learning about your ancestors' neighbours, and studying the historical environment and events, big and small, that took place within a village, you can gain a greater understanding of your own genealogy. An OPS studies all the historical residents of a particular place by gathering all the historical records, memorabilia and stories that mention those residents, and analysing them to reconstruct its family trees and gain insights into the social and economic workings of that place.

Further information is available on their website.

There are no listed One-Place Studies about Latvian parishes. Therefore, the purpose of this board is to bring together people who wish to work together on creating some for Latvian parishes.

*NOTE: Discovering Latvian Roots is not affiliated with the One-Place Studies website or any of the One-Place Study participants, except for where noted, we simply support creating One-Place Studies for Latvian parishes.
