Now this is serious genealogy! A retired secretary and her husband have built miniature models of her ancestors' homes after chronicling 500 years of family history. Peggy and Peter Newman, both 77, have traced buildings linked to 13 generations of relatives since they began researching the project 25 years ago.
Painstakingly carved by hand, each of the 14 houses and other buildings took six months to construct.
Mr Newman, a former electrical engineer, who is now a keen carpenter, has built the houses while his wife has researched the materials and the style, and has contributed needlework.
Mrs Newman said: "The models go back through the ages, with buildings from Tudor and Victorian times right the way through the two World Wars until the present day.
"I am very fussy when it comes to history and they really are authentic. It has been quite hard work but a lot of fun."
