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, Could you please add me to the PGM project. The information I sent you was just to show you they are an early English family. There is also a line that is French, this is not them. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Martin-43022

Thank you

Because I do not know how to merge and I am afraid when I do I will get duplicates. I have to learn that step or have help.

Again, I apologize for having deleted two profiles that I myself created. I created them and soon afterwards I attempted to merge them but upon doing so, I discovered that they had been noted as REJECTED. And in so noticing, I recklessly deleted them knowing that the almost identical profiles I had attempted to merge already existed.

I don't think I harmed anyone, especially since I deleted my own profiles upon discovering that other extremely similar profiles already existed.

Please be assured that I would have never deleted someone else's creation. I would have instead merely rejected it.

Oops, I ran out of space on my previous comment.

Anyways, my idea is as follows:

My idea would thus be to develop a DNA study regarding the various BROWNE and BROWN DNA matches to all of George Gardner’s DNA tested descendants.

I hope that my post is clear. Your thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Nice meeting you here on WikiTree! Thank you for your comments and mergers.

I have an idea I would like to share with you in regards to perhaps resolving George Gardner’s parents. First, I am taking this opportunity to apologize about my failure to read his entire profile before I recklessly posted a possible mother for him. I posted Margaret Browne as his possible mother based on my DNA matches with several persons surnamed BROWN or BROWNE. Thus far, I haven’t been able to make any connections to any BROWNs or BROWNEs and so I assumed that since all of my BROWN and BROWNE matches are distant, our earliest common BROWNE ancestor seemed to fit around George’s mother’s time.

Jillian, sorry for the delay in answering. I would take on the changes to Tubbs people but I don't want to make changes on someone else's page even tho I am listed as a co-manager (which was not of my choosing). The merge, as far as I'm concerned, created geneaology information problems, so I am working on my projects and waiting for Sarah Rojas to tell me what my options are for UN-merging until I have my info entered and then see if we have a good match. Thanks for your comments.

RE: Tubbs-712 and Tubbs-25 Merge.

I would be more ready to agree to a merge if we had a source for Bethiah's birth / parents. Currently neither profile appears to have such a source. Can you help with this?

Re: Abigail Carter. That's not my argument. I merely tied up some loose ends from other people's edits and a merge. I'm not sure why she's on my watclist. Need to look more closely.
