I am interested in communicating with
anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests.
Here is my family tree.Ancestors
See narrative below for more about me.
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 and Philip are members of the Bethesda Friends Meeting.
Jillaine is a Friend (Quaker)
She has made her career supporting the nonprofit sector, and since August 2011 has been one of three co-founders of Fourth Quadrant Partners, LLC.
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 (post 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 Elizabeth Shown Mills' Course 4 at IGHR.
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.
(I've also started following Rick Pierpoint's excellent example and have started creating freespace Source pages; just wish I knew how to find them...)
Wiki-Will for Digital Afterlife
In the event of my death or incapacity for more than 90 days, I give the following permission:
I would like all of the profiles for people not living, and which I alone manage, to be changed to Open. This is up to and including my own profile.
Space pages which I have created for projects should be assigned to the project accounts of those projects (if not already done)
Other space pages can all be changed to Open.
Should these profiles / pages not be accessed within 180 days from my demise, the Wikitree staff shall have full and total access to manage said space and profiles in any way they see fit, up to and including assigning them to any willing Profile Manger, orphaning them, or deleting them.
Birth: Birth certificate of Jillaine S. Smith, details withheld for privacy purposes
Marriage: Marriage Certificate - Philip D. Bogdonoff III and Jillaine S. Smith, Ithaca, New York, June 1995. Details withheld for privacy purposes.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jillaine or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jillaine:
