- Jillaine Smith's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
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.
Wikitree Free Space Pages
- Jillaine's Dream Source Help Page - what I'd like to see replace the numerous different help pages concerning sources and citations.
- GEDCOM Conversion wishlist - an initial start at providing Chris with new alternatives to the existing GEDCOM upload conversion.
- Jillaine's self-guided tour to working with NNS profiles - don't quote me; this may be wrong.
- My to-do list
- Jillaine's Sources - sources I cite regularly.
- Soldiers in King Philip's War - probably a stupid idea, but an effort to convert what's in a public domain work to an index-- linked to pertinent wikitree profiles-- of those who fought in this 17th century colonial war with Native Americans in New England. Incomplete.
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.

The project profile has a handy set of links on it... I use it most to connect to the Google Group. It's also listed in Category:Louisiana Families Project along with other project members who have added the category to their profile (encouraged, but not a requirement).

Unfortunately, a leader popped in and rapidly approved the merge for Gilbert Brooks, but not for Eilizabeth Simmons, so suddenly the Simmons profile was connected to the good profile for Gilbert Brooks.
I am wary of proposing to merge any of these Simmons profiles to the Unknown profile, because it's way too common for someone to decide to reverse a merge toward Unknown and direct it to the seemingly real last name... (and even PPP status may not prevent that, as there are leaders who don't look very carefully).

It is quite possible that I've goofed up somehow so please, if you find a mistake by all means let me know.
