Jillaine has been conducting family history research since 1998. She has been periodically active over at WeRelate.Org, another geneaology wiki; she also maintains a set of genie pages at RootsWeb.
Her research areas include:
- Colonial New England (Winthrop's fleet and later; not Mayflower); she published an article in the NEHGS Register about the two Richard Taylors of Yarmouth, MA.
- Southwest Germany (including the ability to decipher old German church records); in particular, she is documenting the town of Schwenningen (now part of current-day Schwenningen-Villingen), especially the 1847 town-subsidized emigration of the poor.
She also conducts research professionally, is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, New England Historic Genealogical Society, National Genealogy Society; and a graduate/survivor of Course 4 at IGHR. She is currently in the midst of the NGS home study course, after which she intends to pursue certification through BCG.
Jillaine was born at the tail end of the Baby Boom in Long Beach, California. She is married to Philip David Bogdonoff and they live outside of Washington, DC with two cats.
She studied art, anthropology and communications at both University of California Santa Cruz and University of California San Diego (from which she graduated in the early 1980s). She also studied painting at the San Francisco School of Art, and more recently at Yellow Barn Studio, Glen Echo, MD. She also enjoys sewing, hand-work and crafts, and knitting and quilting.
The bulk of her career has focused on helping nonprofit organizations be more effective at pursuing their missions through communications, strategic planning and more recently, organizational learning. She was an early pioneer in online and then Internet communications, serving peace and social justice and environmental organizations.
Jillaine retained her maiden name, Smith, after marriage. (The only female among her siblings to do so.)
