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 (now archival) 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.

Previously, she conducted research professionally, and was a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists; she retains membership with New England Historic Genealogical Society and National Genealogy Society and is a graduate/survivor of Course 4 at IGHR.

you can remove the PPP on Jacob Green, not sure why it's on there or what project he was supposed to be part of.

I think John Gorham is "historically significant" - I am surprised he has not been snatched up by some project although I don't know which one would be best?

For Rebecca Errington, I protected the LNAB before a merge with a Harrington. I don't think it is necessary anymore. Vic

I have no vested interest in John Bouker/Bowker, at onetime thought he was of ancestral interest. I would like to be removed as a manager.

Not sure on George Abell. I adopted the profile . I'd have to research it . I don't have as much time to do so as I used too. I'll try and look into it . Regards Robert .

Hi Jillaine

Re Rebecca Abbe-23 being PPP, my concern about removing PPP is that so many variations of the spelling of her last name are possible, and it helps guard against merging into a bad spelling. I wish there was another way to protect her lnab spelling. Does the PGM adjunct project make sense for her? Thanks Sharon

I am probably asking too much but I would also like to ask if you could tell me which parts of my proposal you find very different from now ("this level of overhaul"). Honestly I am not sure which bits I should look at. I thought they were quite in line with current habits and values. By the way, do you work in pre-1500 ever?

Hello Jillaine thank you for your comment. You seem to be saying you have similar ideas which would be easier to execute, but I don't think you have ever written them out fully? Honestly the main thing is getting a result. Could you try writing out your ideas in an exact way somewhere?

Hello, regarding your comment on Barbour-41, that was not from a publication but from my own collection from sources. Sources for the bio I made were added on the profile as well.

Thank you
