Bletchington a one place study
July 24, 2023 7:15 PM - 9:30 PM at Exeter Hall and via Zoom online
By: Charles Eldridge – The talk will commence at 8pm.
Summary: A One-Place Study (OPS) is a mixture of family and local history for places around the world include towns, parishes, villages, hamlets, streets, or even individual buildings, with some studies focusing on burial grounds or memorials; the boundaries for a particular study are chosen by the person carrying it out. OPS research allows you to explore people and families, using a range of sources including historical records and community stories, analysed alongside the local and national background. The talk will go through the 10 steps to develop an OPS with examples and explanations. Various stories relating to events in the village will be retold. Each OPS is unique, but the principles can be applied to any study.
Speaker Bio: Charles is the OFHS Treasurer and one of the library advisors, with an interest in the Bletchington area. Previously he has talked to The Society on the work of the Relieving Officer focusing on Bletchington.
