- 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.

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.

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.
