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 Jillian. I have always appreciated your work. I need to find a way to add my sources. I work on a Kindle. It won't underscore so I can't link them. I have cognitive issues with symbols , so I don't always get the addresses correctly entered. But I need to get the DNA stuff added at least.

Cont. to reflect John Cherry's theory on the William Carter profile he created and attached to John Carter. Of course Paula has supported Eric's conclusion s. Because he is " through" well he is not. I really don't care if this comment is considered rude. It is truth. And the 3 of them have had no problem making nasty comments to me. And William Carter-4290 is going to end up being a trash profile because they want to go against known info. Jeff Carter, Jimmy Carter's son wrote a well sourced book. That they have just ignored. Historically important profile out the window.

Jilliane , the reason the parents of Carter-4290 have not been detached is that DNA has now proven that John Carter the content is Williams father. I have washed my hands of that profile. Because John Cherry created another profile for William and attached it to John Carter. The work on that profile is sloppy genealogy and the sources have been manipulated to work his way. The 2 profiles should be merged. The work I have done on William has been wiped out and rewritten by John C. This is the reason wikitree's accuracy is a joke. I have been totally disrespected by John , Paula and Eric. If have a great deal of research on William , his wife's and their husbands. The research the that has been , or hasn't been done by them is sloppy. That whole bio on that profile is manipulated

Sarah (Unknown) Buck (previously Riley-5221) is now known as Unknown 391805. You proposed a merge of the two profiles, and also that I correct her maiden name from Riley to "Unknown". I have made that correction and approved the merge. The merge of Riley 5221 and Riley 2243 did not go through the first time because of errors is the 2243 profile which have now been corrected. Thank you!

Hi- l think l had made the profile and did not know that his name was the same as my grt-gr-ftr. I later found they had the same name, but he used Alvin and my gr-ftr used Obed. So l merged them today. Didn't know l had already started one for him. Thanks for the heads-up!

This was regarding Obed Alvin Andrews and anon Andrews.
