Inclusion Criteria

Site Inclusion Criteria

The following criteria are used when determining which individuals to include on this site.  This allows the size of the site to be kept at a reasonable limit so that the quality of the information can be maintained.  Of course, there are always some exceptions, and I reserve the right to determine who to include or exclude.

  1. I include ancestors and descendants of Samuel Duchemin, their spouses, and the parents of their spouses.
  2. I include my paternal and maternal grandparents, and their ancestors.
  3. I don’t typically include the children of female descendants (only the male lines are followed).
  4. I include my direct ancestors, their siblings, their spouses, and the parents of their spouses.
  5. I don’t include any information about living individuals.
  6. I don’t include detailed information for people born after 1930 who died after 1980.
  7. I don’t typically include the siblings of spouses.
  8. I don’t typically include Dishmans that are not descended from Samuel Duchemin.

    1. Yes, there are lots of references to slaves in the pre-Civil War wills (see the Colonial Documents page for a few transcripts) and also in many of the Chancery Court records from Virginia counties. I have a task on my future “to do” list to compile the names of slaves listed in the various documents I have in order to help their ancestors possibly make some connection.

  2. I am trying to prove that Elizabeth Dishman, born abt 1766, wife of Thomas Muse, is the daughter if Samuel Dishman. There are many places online where it states that she is Samuel’s daughter, but no concrete proof or primary source record. Samuel’s will does state Elizabeth is the daughter of Samuel and wife of Thomas, but I need better proof. Any ideas? thanks, Loretta
