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 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.

Hello, Jilliane! Regarding William Stone-2657, I have contacted Cheryl Caudill, another Stone family member, as well as the gentleman that originally posted the file. I hope to have some resolution for you shortly.

Thank you, Lynden R. Rodriguez

Hi Jillaine, please feel free to make any corrections needed on David Hickok or any others. I welcome the help! Sorry for their lack of completeness, work in progress and all.

I do not believe this article refers to Daniel-2860.

One died in 1660 and the other in 1683. Selections from the Trial and Execution of Col. Daniel Axtell in October 1660

Re: Netterville-4 You asked: What is the source for his parents? Also, what is the source for the daughter Margaret?

My answer: Information is from an ancestry.com tree. I imagine your sources are better than the information that I was access too. I have no other information. If you need to make any major changes, pls do what needs to be done with the sources that you have. Mindy

Thanks for the note on John Husser, I had to add the bio for Giuseppe Garibaldi - needed to check to see if it made sense that John would have been there - in fact the guard unit that he was in was the unit in Italy when Garibaldi was there - the story held together - I was surprised -
