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.

Re: Kratt-6. You are right. I made a typo when inputting the year of Michael Kratt's parents' marriage. It was 1836, not 1846. Of course he was not born 6 years before his parents married. :) It was 4 years after. Thank you for pointing that out.

You are 100% correct that Adam Pieter Brouwer's parents should not be listed. There is absolutely no proof that his father's name is Frans. It matches none of the naming conventions of the family. It's a very stubborn situation, and should be removed. I made the case to have it removed years ago, to no avail.

Ann (Hill) Tallman (Hill-6039), wife of Peter Tallman (Tallman-8), gave birth to her daughter, Sarah (Tallman-142); however, the birth father was not Peter Tallman, but Thomas Durfee (Durfee-108), as proved by numerous sources. Eventually, Peter Tallman found out the truth and divorced Ann as a result of the adultery. The child, Sarah (Tallman-142), retained the Tallman surname. There doesn't seem to be any source that indicates Ann Tallman and Thomas Durfee every married or that Thomas ever legally took responsibility for his birth daughter, Sarah. It seems to me there are duplicate profiles that may need to be merged and edited. I hope this comment will not "muddy the waters" further as it's pretty confusing right now. :)

Re: Thomas Grover. I 'inherited' this profile when I uploaded my tree. I have no idea about the information on his supposed wife or that line. I didn't even write (copy/paste) the biography on his profile.

Hi Jillian - I did not turn profiles into anon-anon, but merged unwanted profiles into that one: anon-1022. So have been "merging them away", as you instructed.

Thank you, have noted that parentage lacks confirmation. (have been trying to follow up all the citations in Underdown's book. He tends to use record numbers and I can't follow some up until I get back to Dorchester He may have just made an assumption that there was only one family with this name; though there were other Galpins ( edit: just read his CV and obituries, probably me making that assumption, it's a book for the general public but he was an eminent historian of the period)
