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.

I do not understand the post you made on Ashbel Fuller. What is it that you think I need to discuss with others before spending more time? I have done more work on his profile as well as [[Space: Census Data for Family of Ashbel and Loraine Fuller|Census Data for Family of Ashbel and Loraine Fuller]], the page that has the research and chart which was originally on Ashbel's profile. Take a look at the revised profiles and let me know what you think! Thanks, Pat

Hi JIllaine, I have pasted the transcription info for Anne Hutchinson on her profile. I have downloaded a copy of the actual record which is a jpeg, but don't know how to get it to you 'cause I don't think you can put attachments on messages. It is in Latin - Juni Anne (or Anna, hard to read) filia Eddi Hutchinson bap.seat 12 dio. Alford is in Lincolnshire by the way. There are 169 records including brother Edvardius. But nothing for mum and dad I'm afraid.

Your invitation was addressed to Kitty, but I hope you won't object if I "edit the heck out of" (or rather edit parts of) Space:The John Smiths of Early New England. I'll probably work on John Smith of Lancaster first. He's the earliest known Smith in my Smith line, via his son Richard (who left Lancaster and settled in Lyme, Connecticut) and I have a different line of descent from his daughter Anne Moore. I was not aware that he was treated in the Anderson article about John (Bland) Smiths and other John Smiths associated with Watertown, but that article helps explain some Internet strangeness I've seen. And Anderson's conclusions are consistent with my understanding that the origins of John Smith of Lancaster are unknown, and there is no evidence that he was in Watertown.

I agree with you. The parents should be detached until evidence is found.

John Bland Smith has been a thorn for a long time. I do not know of any sources for his father.
