Family History

Treasured mementos of our families are often an excellent place to start family history research. By placing personal items into a historical context, we can begin to draw on information to uncover your family history. Archival research is brought together in our Family Folios to highlight vivid encounters with your ancestors.

House Portrait Illustrations

Our appreciation of older buildings doesn’t stop with their history, we think they look amazing too! Illustration adds charm and flair to our range of products.

“This is a repeat purchase for research ..

This is a repeat purchase for research of second paternal line. As before Fiona and her team have done a fantastic job. Many thanks! 🙂


Family Folio

Fiona and her team produced for me a lovely portfolio with very little background information to go by. It’s nice to now know a little bit more about my heritage and ancestors.

Fiona did an excellent job and worked to a tight deadline for my husbands birthday. Very happy with the report and lovely to learn about our house!

Sarah Graham

really captured the house perfectly

Fiona was super helpful, and worked to a very tight deadline with me for my mum’s birthday. Wendy really captured the house perfectly and made sure it was right for me before sending – our house is awfully old so the research element was great! Proudly hanging in my parent’s office space now. 5 stars!!
