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.

Elspeth Henderson was an orphaned pgm profile when I took it on. I don't feel qualified to pass on events in Britain nor access to satisfactory sources so didn't want to mess with a pgm. Having said that, what little i have on her parents indicates they were 17 or 18 at her birth and had moved to Scotland. Without being expert on Scot history I can imagine much displacement besides the pgm.

I posted on the profile of Wood-100 about the "suggestion" of fixing the FindAGrave reference because I don't have privilege to change it, and this appeared to be the suggested step.

Another comment about your notes on Moody Fish: you asked who was the Jane Fish in the 1850 census in his household. She was [[Nye-643|Jane (Nye) Fish, widow of Josiah Fish. Moody & Josiah were 3rd cousins, so why she was in Moody's household would be unknown to me. Josiah & Moody's 2nd wife were about the same relationship.

Hi Jillaine,

Just now found your note on the profile for Moody Fish. (I moved in April, just going through all my old messages now <gulp>). Agreed that that line 'daughtered out'. The one son, Henry, I believe never married, was a soldier in the Civil War (MA 33rd Regt), and wandered off until I found him again in the Soldier's home in TN in 1920, and died in 1921. He *might* have married and had children, but I've been unable to locate him between 1863-1920. His death record gives no marital status or parents.

On a different profile Carter-9593. Glad you didn't ask about source. I don't have one for parents of son Robert of Killingworth. Thought I did until I read about August Anjou.

Nor do I have parents for Robert attached to him
