I have a pretty full plate in my (non genealogy) business, therefore I don't expect to be very active. Thanks. Smith-32867 12:57, 20 October 2014 (EDT)


Jillaine was born at the tail end of the baby boom, youngest of four children of John & Miriam Smith. Raised in California, she moved to Washington DC in the mid 1990s to marry Philip David Bogdonoff.


Jillaine started researching her family in 1998. 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.

Hello, Jilliane! Regarding William Stone-2657, I have contacted Cheryl Caudill, another Stone family member, as well as the gentleman that originally posted the file. I hope to have some resolution for you shortly.

Thank you, Lynden R. Rodriguez

Hi Jillaine, please feel free to make any corrections needed on David Hickok or any others. I welcome the help! Sorry for their lack of completeness, work in progress and all.

I do not believe this article refers to Daniel-2860.

One died in 1660 and the other in 1683. Selections from the Trial and Execution of Col. Daniel Axtell in October 1660

Re: Netterville-4 You asked: What is the source for his parents? Also, what is the source for the daughter Margaret?

My answer: Information is from an ancestry.com tree. I imagine your sources are better than the information that I was access too. I have no other information. If you need to make any major changes, pls do what needs to be done with the sources that you have. Mindy

Thanks for the note on John Husser, I had to add the bio for Giuseppe Garibaldi - needed to check to see if it made sense that John would have been there - in fact the guard unit that he was in was the unit in Italy when Garibaldi was there - the story held together - I was surprised -

I'm new to Wikitree but not to Jillaine who has been a tremendous help to me over the years. Her information on former residents/ancestors from Schwenningen is awesome.

Jilliaine, Thank you so much for researching and substantiating the parents of my ancestor Simon Lobdell-12. It is wonderful to have such support provided freely.

Jillaine, this is crazy, I have a 1st cousin born Jillaine Smith, of course she uses her married name now. Back to John Smith, I do not know what the correct date is, but I have removed John from all of my data as I found him to be the wrong John Smith, of course it was after my upload. So whatever you determine works for you is fine.
