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 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.

Jillaine, got your post on pre 1776 profiles. Not sure where I asked for permission unless it was a PPP profile

Jilliane, according to "In Memoriam: Josephine Richardson Barnes, 1843-1899", written 1902, Martha Ruggles married Job Lane in 1713. He died in 1762, she in 1763. There seem to be several Ruggles families, so there could be a Martha who married Gordon Ball but not related to the line I have.
