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

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.

I bought the Family Folio as a Christmas present for my Dad and he thought it was fantastic. The final design looks great - such a lovely way to record our family history. The team provided regular updates on their progress during research and design. Thank you Littlehistoriesshop for helping me find the perfect gift!

Bought this as a Christmas gift to my mam. She absolutely loved it!! The presentation is beautiful and all the information was so informative-a beautiful keepsake-such a thoughtful gift. I also purchased the house history for my sister which she loved. Can’t recommend enough- ⭐️ Will definitely purchase from little histories again

Absolutely wonderful! We ordered two illustrations with custom details (people & pets) plus a short history.
The illustrations were perfect and the short history gave me goosebumps - fascinating. I really wasn’t expecting so many interesting facts.
Blown away by how good it is! Best find all year, such unique gifts. So well presented and wrapped. Made with a lot of love and care. You won’t regret ordering.
Journeys into the past that allow you to share and re-tell stories into the future.
The best ideas come from a chat over a mug of coffee in the local coffee shop, and I was no different. The seeds to set up a business researching heritage were sown in 2018 on Gosforth High Street in Newcastle when two friends started to talk about retiring and how much they disliked the idea!
My self and my school friend began by setting up a Facebook page and website blog researching local history. Our page quickly progressed to researching the history of houses and also family histories.
Very shortly after this, my daughter joined us, adding her graphic design and illustration skills to the heritage mix.
We started to develop aspects of our research work into saleable products, and in September 2020, we opened our Etsy shop.
Our products are inspired by the discoveries we have made about the lives of "ordinary" people living in "ordinary" houses, which have uncovered extraordinary and personal stories.
Sharing and re-telling stories is one of our oldest and most valued traditions. We hope our Littlehistoriesshop products will take you on a journey into the past and allow you to share into the future.

Frequently asked questions
How long does your research take?
Research time varies for each item. We will always make every effort to complete within the estimated timeframe but this is not always possible.
Can you guarantee to find information about my house?
We like to know that we can offer value for money on all our products so although we can not offer guarantees we do offer a free assessment on all commissions before purchase. This allows us to to be confident in our offer of producing a quality product whilst allowing our clients to be confident in our service.
My house was part of a manor is it still possible to find out about the history?
We love researching older properties! This requires access to various manorial records. The manorial system is not straight forward and differs from region to region. For this reason we would recommend the Chapter and Verse House History pack for properties that fall into the manorial system.
My House is an old Farmhouse can you still research its history?
If your house is a farmhouse or was subsequently built on farm land we can still complete a House History this will require more specialised research and we would recommend our Chapter and Verse House History pack for houses with this situation. We would also recommend this pack for rural properties.
Will you be able to trace my house through the war years
Unfortunately many records did not survive through the war years, there was no census in 1942 because of the war. We will always try but information is often sketchy and sometimes non existent.
Can you find out any details about the people who lived in my house?
Yes! we can usually include a detailed table of all the residents and their occupations.
