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.

Dear Jillian,

Thank you for cleaning up George Russworm's profile, I had no idea it was even there! I asked Ancestry for a 25 person GedCom and they dumped a thousand or more people into it, all with all those backlinks (which are ADS - a pox on them and their house).

I've been cleaning profiles for months. Sigh... I really appreciate the help. :D

You are going to need to ask someone with pre-1500 certification to complete the John Hicks (Hicks-4041) and John Hicks (Hicks-736) merge. I don't have it yet.

Thank you for the great source on the (not) wife of John Chester-38. Actually your comment was on Chester-40, and there is third 'duplicate', Chester-42, with more not-wives of John.

I decided to clean up the whole family, since I love solving puzzles. I thought it was only Edward Stebbins sister Editha (Stebbins) (Day) (Maynard) Holyoak that was an ancestor of my husband, but it turns out that ancestors of John Chester are up his Kellogg/Phelps line, and I would not have found them for our tree without your source.

So thank you:)

I'm not sure if there is any actual proof that Mary Hardy was the wife of John Hinton. However, one thing I found compelling was the fact that they named one of their children Hardy Hinton.

Jillaine, The source for Samuel being the son of Christian is the Find A Grave Memorial...for now. It's still a work in progress. :) Also, Washingtonville is split between Columbiana and Mahoning Counties. Is it possible that the border changed at some point? Checking on this.

Jillaine, Thanks for you email concerning the orphan profile for "Unknown Augustin" [Augustin-20]. This was an initial data download issue with the gedcom file originally added to WikiTree. I have merged his data with Eugene H. Augustin. Jim
