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.

Jillaine, I clicked on the merge for Henry Chapin 136 & 126. I hope all the work I have done on the PGM profile will not be merged away. I have been waiting for quite a while for a merge I proposed between Chapin 133 & 136.

I appreciate your attempt to merge two John Potters, born 1608 in Lewes, Sussex, England, who married Elizabeth Wood. After John's death Elizabeth may have remarried, taking the last name Rose. This John Potter came to New Haven, Conn., USA in about 1639, accompanied or preceded by his older brother Wiliam Potter (who was eventually hanged). Please notify me if a singular chart can be validated.
