Worldwide One-Place Study Register replaced with One Place Studies Directory

+11 votes

Please be aware that the independent Worldwide One-Place Study Register, which most members of the WikiTree one place studies project will be aware of, and many had registered with, has closed. The decision was prompted by the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation which takes effect from 25 May 2018 and issues with third party service providers.

Now the good news .. the One Place Studies Directory has taken its place and captures no personal data - it simply directs interested parties to the appropriate WikiTree one place study free-space profiles where these exist. United States studies are the first to be transitioned across and other countries will follow shortly. Owners of one place studies worldwide with no current web presence will be encouraged to consider joining WikiTree and the one place studies project

Confusing,  it leads to
There is also the Society for One Place studies. It has been around for several years and has a similar URL
Helen - members of the one place studies project should already be aware of both organisations as they are each referred to on the one place studies project page - is free and has over 900 studies covering over 2,500 places worldwide - has an annual subscription and study registration fee and consequently far fewer studies but provides a regular publication 'Destinations' and holds a conference annually (all have been in England to date) - Martin
Thank you for that Martin. At the moment the new site is far from complete and hard to evaluate. Still think that it would be better to use a name/url that made it distinctive.
Helen - I'm not sure quite what you need to evaluate - the directory is complete for the United States and Wales - Scotland is about to be added and other countries will be added over the next few days - the basic format will not be any different to what you see - it is a tool that will direct interested parties to WikiTree - on your final point we have been using the URL for over four years - Martin

I could not see how to delete an entry for my study that is no longer being done. Could you please delete Belmont, Nye, Nevada, United States?
