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.

Thank you for your help, on the Judd profiles Jillaine.

I added 'caution' notes at the top of the profile for John Loomis and Mary Judd, and wrote a Research Notes Section for both of them, but don't know if it will be enough.

There is an "Int. Marr" source at Ancestry.com that says John married Mary; I also left a note on the source page at Ancestry, citing sources that show it is wrong.

Working on a profile from the errors to a corrected version always makes me feel as if I've been pulled through a briar patch. Your support is appreciated!

Thanks again,

Thanks for taking James Coles in hand today, I had removed the parents thinking I'd sort things out, but then restored them thinking it would be better to be more open via a G2G discussion.

They want to leave the incorrect parents for Adam Brouwer Berkhoven, because they are stubborn. They even say that the parents are unproven... yet, they won't remove them. Someone has way too much invested in incorrect parentage. There is ZERO evidence, yet they still show it and refuse to change it

I am checking on the source of Rice Leonard being the son of Solomon. Due to the problems on Ancestry, I cannot even get to people's profiles today. Will check when things calm down over there.

Thank you for your recent comment on my profile in regards to adding a Magna Carta project approved template and trail section to the profile of recognized Magna Carta ancestor, Edmund Hawes. I was unaware it was necessary to add a source when doing so. However, my action to add this section is supported by Wikitree and Magna Carta Project policy (please see comment on Dawes profile). This profile has been in a project reviewed trail that wss recently re-reviewed by member James Stratman. By adding the trail section the profile was updated to meet current style standards.


Magna Carta Template Trail (see use instructions)

I am not certain as to what additional sources would be required (other than Douglas Richardson who is cited in the profile) in order to add a project approved Magna Carta trail section to a project approved profile and Magna Carta trail ? Please advise.

Proposed Merge of Senshon-1 and St. John-12

Disputed Existence

A previous version of this profile claimed that Elizabeth or Susannah St. John (aka Senchon) was daughter of Matthias St John and Mary Tinker. However, there is no support for such a child by either name.[1]

She was also put forth as the first wife of PGM immigrant Walter Hoyt, m 1643 in Windsor, CT, without adequate supporting sources.[2]

Robert Charles Anderson, Great Migration..., vol VI R-S, pp 231-232 lists all documented children of Matthias Sension and Mary Tinker; no Elizabeth or Susannah is listed among them.
