We have all heard of the ties that bind us. Your extended family, known as collateral family are your ties. Well this package is about those ties! Your cousins, aunts, uncles, great-aunts; for example. These people form the bonds in your family as they did for your ancestors, they are the 'stock' of your family.
The Stock and Bonds Package is for those who would like ALL of their family genealogy researched. This includes bloodline and extended family members. This is a great option for those who would like a full family tree with an interest in the other branches.
Reasons to choose this package:
you already started your family tree but haven't completed the larger project yet
a genealogy project with room to grow into a family history project
you want to know about your whole family
you are purchasing the package as a gift
a deposit equal to 50% of contracted hours due before any work begins
you will be billed in regular increments agreed upon in your contract.
increments will be monthly, every six-weeks, or quarterly
your due date is chosen by you
researcher fees and additional costs will be billed to you
Notes for consideration:
This is a highly recommended project because sometimes the siblings and 'long lost relatives' hold the key that a direct ancestor did not. In-laws of ancestors typically not researched within the extended family package.
Approximately 14 years per hour researched, per individual for the first 180 years.
Who will be researched?
You can request your maternal or paternal side. If you'd prefer you can request both. Your bloodline and collateral relatives are included.
How far back does the research go?
You will set the limits on your project by selecting the starting person (usually yourself) and how many generations to the past you would like, and how many degrees collateral. (You can also set an hour or monetary limit).
What will be researched?
The standard research for each individual includes, but not limited to: Name, Spouse(s), Date of Birth, Marriage and Death, Place of Birth, Marriage and Death, Addresses lived at, Occupations held and If they served in the military.
What you get upon completion:
On completion, you will receive at a minimum a Pedigree chart, Extended Family Tree chart, Ahnentafel Report, Genealogy Report, Kinship Report, Individual Family Group Sheet for each family, a person-to-person relationship for you and your oldest found lineal relative, plus an Individual Timeline for each of your lineal relatives and all supporting documentation. You can request any other charts and reports you would like in addition to those provided. Remember you can personalize the display of colors, fonts, and titles.
You will receive two versions of your final project; hard copy and soft copy.Soft copies are typically pdf files, file transfer, website detail, and disks. Hard copies are typically printed versions of your reports and files, canvas family trees, large paper scrolls, and archival books. Availability options for both hard and soft copy will be discussed with you before they are provided.

The below images are samples of a collateral ancestry tree to show you the family path and versions of the above reports. They belong to other families and to prevent duplication have been slightly degraded for display online. Your own charts will be a better quality.

Note: The results of Genealogy Research can not be guaranteed by any researcher. Information of research included on the list above is not an exclusive list, nor is there a guarantee that information will be discovered. Likewise, additional information could be found that is not listed. While every effort will be made in some cases the information is not available. Altering the parameters of the search will also alter the projected rate of discovery. Should there be any information in the package you do not wish me to research please specify this to me so you do not pay for that additional time.
