One Place Studies in the US and beyond

One of the contributors to the demise of the One Place Studies Project was its connection - or not - with US History>State projects.  Current structure means One Place Studies need to have the phrase "One Place Study" in their title, but to change every US One Place Study's categories on every profile would prove disastrous.

Here is the final solution:

1.  We put "This page is maintained in association with the One Place Studies Project" and the project box at the top of every county page which has a One Place Study (not state pages, because they may have counties which don't have a One Place Study)
2.  We ask NEW Studies to put the phrase 'One Place Study' in their title, which also puts it in their URL and their category
3.  Old Studies can do this as an edit to their current freespace page; URL will remain the same, category pages will remain the same, categories on profiles will remain the same 
4.  'US Place Studies' are already in the One Place Studies Project via the Regional Place Studies page, which lists Studies by country.

Please be patient as we make these editorial changes.

Should https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:New_Jersey_Place_Studies also be in Category: New Jersey for findability? 

There is one for Trenton but I don’t know if it’s active: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Trenton%2C_Mercer_County%2C_New_Jersey%2C_USA
