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.
Soldiers in King Philip's War - probably a stupid idea, but an effort to convert what's in a public domain work to an index-- linked to pertinent wikitree profiles-- of those who fought in this 17th century colonial war with Native Americans in New England. Incomplete.
(I've also started following Rick Pierpoint's excellent example and have started creating freespace Source pages; just wish I knew how to find them...)

Jillaine Smith's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jillaine or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jillaine:

Thank you for clearing up the " Bolling" (red) imbroglio ....he remains a cousin but is not a descendant of " Amonute Powhatan" via his marriage to Jane Rolfe. The search for the 100% Native American grandparent during that window of 1600-1700 shall carry on.
Hi Jillaine, I see in your biography where you wrote "Rick Pierpoint's excellent example and have started creating freespace Source pages; just wish I knew how to find them...)". I love doing those for sources I use too and I always find them by going to my watchlist > then up at TOP, it says "Switch to your Free-Space Watchlist for profiles of places, events, and things"...Merry Christmas..love the sweater in your pic!
The connector between people (you have one to me) is not a genealogical one, but I'm proud to have you there. I find your messages in interesting places saying interesting things. My Bowie genetic relatives connect with yours through the Pottengers, who are probably not really related to me. --Great fun, but useless ultimately. Nevertheless, fun!
