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:
Re Rebecca Abbe-23 being PPP, my concern about removing PPP is that so many variations of the spelling of her last name are possible, and it helps guard against merging into a bad spelling. I wish there was another way to protect her lnab spelling. Does the PGM adjunct project make sense for her?
I am probably asking too much but I would also like to ask if you could tell me which parts of my proposal you find very different from now ("this level of overhaul"). Honestly I am not sure which bits I should look at. I thought they were quite in line with current habits and values. By the way, do you work in pre-1500 ever?
Hello Jillaine thank you for your comment. You seem to be saying you have similar ideas which would be easier to execute, but I don't think you have ever written them out fully? Honestly the main thing is getting a result. Could you try writing out your ideas in an exact way somewhere?
