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.

Hi Jillaine, I did not see a page for this great man? If there is none would your project so kindly make him a page? Thank you.

Hi Jillaine, I saw you took an interest in Mary Unknown before. Can she be PPP under PGM? She was married in Connecticut about 1644. If not would you kindly put a temporary PPP on her to protect the Unknown in the pending merge? Maybe she can go in the Connecticut project if not a strict PGM. Thank you for taking a look.

Thanks for your message Jillaine!

Just for reference - what happened is that a user was able to add John Whipple as the spouse to this profile on November 1 (which you can see in the tracked changes):


I am following your point though, that this is just something that will happen now and then with merges, etc.

It's not that big of a deal. I was just venting though because this is one of those errors in online trees that constantly resurfaces.

I appreciate the work that you and many others have done on the PGM project, as these profiles really need accurate sources, since (as you well know) there are so many online trees with errors out there.

Hi Jillaine, I added some text to Coffin-224 to support the yDNA category. Thanks for the suggestion.

From Page 52:

V. CHARLOTTE MARIA DE VEAUX, born May 9, 1809; married Thomas N. Box, by Rev. Edward Neufville, December 4, 1833, at Mrs. Thomas N. Morel's. Thomas N. Box was son of Charles Box and Miss Netherclift, son of Philip Box and Miss Rigbye. Thomas N. Box and Charlotte Maria De Veaux had issue.

Thomas Netherclift Box and Charlotte Maria De Veaux, born May 11, 1809, Savannah, Ga. (They were married December 3, 1833; C. M. De Veaux died June 14, 1853), had issue —

I. JAMES STEPHENS BOX born October 3, 1834 II. SARAH ANN BOX, born June 23, 1836 III. MARGARET FRANCES BOX, born December 29, 1837 IV. CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH BOX, born December 24, 1840 V. MARY ELIZA BOX, born November 18, 1844 VI. FLORENCE DE VEAUX BOX, born February 13, 1847 VII. MARIA ANN BOX, born December 9, 1850

Hello Jillaine:

Charlotte is from Maj. Peter De Veaux's daughter from his first marriage to Martha Box. From this marriage came:

I. MARY ELIZA DE VEAUX, born July 26, 1772 II. ANN FAIRCHILD DE VEAUX, born November 19, 1807 III. MARGARET STEPHENS DE VEAUX, born October 8, 1798 IV. ELIZA SARAH DE VEAUX, born October 8, 1798 V. CHARLOTTE MARIA DE VEAUX, born May 9, 1809 VI. LUCIA BELLINGER DE VEAUX, born April 22, 1812 VII. FRANCES ANN DE VEAUX, born October 20, 1802 VIII. MARY MARTHA DE VEAUX, born August 26, 1800 IX.WILLIAM DE VEAUX, born June 9, 1806

I hope that helps clear things up a bit... for now. ;-)

Hi Jillaine,

I was surfing through the tree when I noticed that there's a discrepency with William Eddy (Eddye-15), the father of PGM Samuel Eddy. It has been pointed out both on the profile and by other contributers in the message board that William's parents have been proven incorrect; the father seems to have been part of an original GEDCOM upload (again, the father has been disproven) and the mother was added in January of this year with only an Ancestry tree as a source. As the father of a PGM, I was curious as to whether the project could remove the false parents and protect the profile or not.
