One-Place and Location Studies

  • Guildford and District ~ A Pictorial Archive – I was born in Guildford and am very proud of my heritage and links within the area. Over the last 20 years I have collected a vast archive of memorabilia relating to Guildford and the rural parishes surrounding it that are linked to my family history.  A chance pondering, and I contemplated this project, to publish the archive over the course of a year, commencing on my birthday, 10th October 2011 with a completion date of 9th October 2012. A total of 366 items because 2012 was a leap year. In the early weeks of 2013, I received an email of someone who like me was born in the area, and now lives in another part of the Country. I was asked what I planned to do with the collection and did I have any more, unpublished (by me) images? I did, and thought I would simply share them in a random fashion! I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I have compiling it.
  • Puttenham (and Wanborough) This One-Place Study commenced in 1986 and was registered with both the Society of One-Place studies & Register of One-Place studies in 2013.
  • Sutera (Sicily) One-Place Study – This One-Place Study commenced in 1988 and was registered with both the Society of One-Place studies & Register of One-Place studies in 2013. Over the course of the last 25 years I have noted various references in relation to the Italian village linked with my ancestry. Thankfully, I have nowhere near the amount of references to Sutera as I do for Puttenham which has made the sharing online process much easier. 
  • Walnut Tree Close (Guildford Surrey) Community Archive – This One-Place Study commenced in 1984 and was registered with both the Society of One-Place studies & Register of One-Place studies in 2013. ​
