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.
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.
Birth: Birth certificate of Jillaine S. Smith, details withheld for privacy purposes
Marriage: Marriage Certificate - Philip D. Bogdonoff III and Jillaine S. Smith, Ithaca, New York, June 1995. Details withheld for privacy purposes.
Jauch is the surname of my emigrating ancestor who left Schwenningen in southern Germany in the mid 1800s and settled in Buffalo NY. I also run a one-name study here on this surname and have much info about Jauchs throughout the country. Yauch is a variation.
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:

Hi Jillaine- this is Rantz-7 aka Karen. I was the profile manager for Rogers-171. Rogers-7411 merged with Rogers-171- my question is will I be added to that huge list of profile managers? I would like to be. Thanks!
Hi hun, sorry it took so long to get back to you, so very much has hit me in the last year or so. You asked about where we found Deming for Sarah Deming Moody. I just added my sources to help support her profile.
Thanks Jillaine funny you should ask about Walter Phelps! I was just looking at him yesterday and I don't know exactly where he came into the picture. I'm going thru my other programs to see where he came from.
Thanks Jillaine, I adopted Hart profiles and there are so many I had not had time to go through them all, evidently William Hart was linked to William Hurt from a GED. I have unlinked the Hurts as William Harts parents . Not even sure if William Hurt is a legit profile. Will see what I can find.
Hi Jillaine, Not sure what to do about John Hurt-65 and the private profiles. William Hurt-80. I have sent messages to the team on this subject since March. Not sure what is going on with this profile. I am going to submit a MIR now, don't know how else to get attention on the issue.
I have revised my biography in preparation for updating PPP [Barnes-1145] on G2G. I teach genealogy at a community college and quote from you on original and derivative sources. In by bio, I reference you. If you would prefer that I remove it, please advise.
Hi. I saw John Ball's record needed a manager A couple days ago and took it. I don't know who added the family bible comment. I agree with you that this is a controversial line. Hope I didn't do something wrong by adopting his profile. Thanks for commenting.
