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.

I protected Ann Unknown Ford (Unknown-7625) before I proposed the merge. When you compare, the PPP now appears below the Bio. Re the Unknown parents, I have no idea what to do with them. Vic

Hey Jillaine, in response to your query regarding Whelden-23, please see the following page: http://jliptrap.us/gen/whilden.htm

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

In answer to your last question yes Haller is Anna Rapp's b 1852 maiden name. This is verified on her daughter Anna Rapp Jauch's cemetery records.

Good Morning Jillian!

Yes Jakob Jauch's son Emil (my ggf) was married to Anna Rapp Jauch (1878-1957) daughter of Louis Rapp b 1850 Laura Anna Rapp b 1852. I have been so focused on Jakob Jauch that I have not explored the Rapp's yet, but from what little I have seen there is good information out there on them.

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!

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.
