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.

Regarding your note on Unknown Atwood-1465. He was apparently added between Orville Atwood and his father William, probably by mistake - I didn't realize the profile was there. I will update it with some real information about one of William's other children instead of deleting it. Thanks for noticing.

Jillaine, we are 8th cousins 1x removed, so I am related to the Tobeys and the Alberts as you are.

Thank you, but I am sorry, I have no information on him. He was in a bunch that I adopted, there was no information on him. It just had his name.

Good morning, I recieved your email in regards to Robert Alexander and wanted to know about any information I have. After looking through my early history documents I located the Robert Alexander in question who married Mary Jack (my 2nd cousin, 6x removed), after looking through the Sketches of Western North Carolina,

Historical and Biographical, by C. L. Hunter I have located biography, accomplishments, and participation in early american history. It's quite a lot of information, and I will try to disect it and add it to his profile. If you would like, I can send the information to you to sort through the information quicker and help me decide what information is relevant. I wll send the documet to you if you let me know how or where to send it.

I adopted ap Cadwaladr-8 and never did anything with him. I have added a cite for his existence, but he was born back ca. 0500. I cannot find any way to connect him to anyone else on Wikitree.

Thanks for the kind words. It has been a lot of fun and I appreciate all the support on G2G and I've enjoyed sharing research with and learning from other members of the PGM team. I love this project! Cheers!

Hi, Jillaine!

Thanks for calling my attention to the "empty file" of my grandfather's Swedish ancestor. I believe I was a greener member of WikiTree when I added it. Having used Legacy for many years, I'm used to their request to add parents, whether or not I have information on them, if they have multiple children. That's what I did here, I'm sure. Tried to fix it.

Thanks, again,

Re: Doris and Chancie

I don't know that for a fact but it sure looks likely. That is the information I had been given some time ago and appears well corroborated by your cemetery find.
