The link to use now - which the original site now redirects to - is

http://www.one-place-studies.org/

which has a directory of one-place studies and other resources, like articles/advice about tackling a one-place study, and a forum for people to share tips/ideas/techniques/thoughts.

Having followed the link, I still don't know just WHAT is needed to be done for a One Place Study.
All I know is that that site costs 10 a year.

Is there anyone who can give advice on how to do a One Place Study please?

Although it has been awhile since you posted, I just joined RootsChat.com and will take a stab at this. A one place study is simply the study of a place (that can be a village, a town, a block, a neighborhood, a cemetery, etc.). You study the place in a variety of ways - those born, married and died in your place, education, occupations, military service, property, businesses, etc. Many times you are studying a place where your ancestors are from or a place you have settled. Local history can be gleaned from libraries, schools, churches, civic organizations, etc. One excellent one-place study is for Wing (in the UK). You could check that website. Another way to check out one place studies is with the One Place Register. You should be able to find both online. These studies are done all over the world.
