Axedale Then and Now is an official worldwide “One Place Study”. I’m sure most will be wondering what is a One Place Study.
A One Place Study is a designated study of a particular city, town, village or area. Axedale is the only One Place Study being done in Victoria at the moment. Most family historians, while researching their family history, do a little research on the place where their ancestors settled. A One Place Study doesn’t focus on any particular family. The focus is on the place and it’s people, regardless of any relationship to the person recording the information.
A One Place Study aims to report on everything that occurs or has occurred in a particular place, including geographical, the people living or who lived in a community, community activities, education, employment, business. Anything that occurs or occurred in a particular area, at a particular time can be recorded on a One Place Study. Old newspaper articles and official records will also be a focus of this study.
Eventually this One Place Study will build a historical picture of Axedale and those who have lived there. It is my intention that this One Place Study of Axedale will become a resource for anyone wishing to research their family history or find out more about Axedale and the surrounding area.
