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.

I really like you Jillaine.

Thank you for adding to my incomplete response on this G2G question:


You filled in exactly what information and salutations he needed that was lacking in my response. Your wording was perfect.

I appreciate you, and am proud to be on your team. Thank you.

Have a super day!

Re Nicholas Winton, I'm quite sure the obits are copyrighted and they are only there temporarily until I write a proper bio, which I'm mentally working on.

Thanks for bringing my error (on Anita Clement) to my attention. I had intended to list her middle initial as "A" not her maiden name.

Hi Jillaine - re your comment on Samuel Briggs-1528 possibly being a duplicate to Briggs-681. These two are not duplicates. Briggs-1528 has the incorrect parents as well as death information that is likely from -681. Briggs-1528 is actually a dup to Briggs-601, although it doesn't look that way based on his current parents. Work to resolve the problem is underway.

When I have time, and am in a mood to draw (free-hand) ... I like to cartoon. So one day some years back, I drew 3 anime scenes then combined the images in a GIF file...

I was trying to represent a scene where a girl is on empty urban street, and a black hole emerges to engulf the area:)...

I guess the good news is that even though we can't embed youtube videos... we can upload GIF images:)

Jilliane, in response to, "on Van Schoonhoven-1 unmerged match, you posted there: " needs a PPP swap to lowest number match."."

I work with Michelle on the PPP. The template and category tell me what to do with it, as needed.

The swap is always a bit awkward, because it requires two steps instead of one. But I think I templated it, so it should be on my list for me to get done.

Thanks for the comment re: spouse of Thomas Mingael. You said "The Vosburgh spouse is incorrect. She married someone else. His only wife was a Van Deu(r)sen. See 1912 VD genealogy. " Do you have a source for Vosburgh's husband? These old Dutch profiles are marked as protected, so I don't think I have any authority to make the change you request.
