Hello and welcome to my blog!
My name is Michael Auger and I’ve been involved in genealogy for about 20 years now. However, the seeds were planted way back in the late 1970’s when my older brother Donald gave the family a copy of a genealogy report for our Dad’s side that he had researched and created. Needless to say I was enthralled. Beginning in the early 1990’s I started expanding upon Donald’s work and also working on my Mom’s side as well. Fast-forward to today I continue to do genealogical research and have a strong desire to eventually do professional genealogy work and as a first step towards that goal in May of 2011 became a graduate of the Boston University Genealogical Research Program.
After a couple of years of gnawing on the idea, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and become a blogger. While genealogy research has always been fun for me, one of my biggest genealogical goals is to write family history stories based on my research, so at the most basic level, I’m hoping this blog will be the impetus to write more in general and also to connect with other genealogists and potential cousins.
So, here it goes. Now that post number one is officially under my belt, I’m looking forward to learning from fellow genealogists and to sharing information.
