I have been researching my Canadian family history and genealogy since 2003. At the time, I was working in Lyon, France and I did not have access to primary records to sustain my research but I have found genealogical data on the web that enabled me to start my tree. As the years went by, I moved on to Switzerland where I have no more access to records than I did before. Nevertheless, I pursued my research and started to collect digital birth records, census transcriptions and family stories. The rise of digital content in libraries, archives and family history centers made it possible for me to continue hunting for my ancestors and to connect to my distant cousins using social networks and genealogy websites.

So after ten years of search, scrolling, finding and collecting I have come to realize that it is time for me to write about all the stories I found. The Family History Rogue has been my pet project for a few months now and I have finally decided to take the plunge.

    Good to meet another genealogist here. Thanks for the follow and I look forward to checking your posts out. I didn’t start my site as a family tree/history site, but I wanted to document my story and that story starts long ago in my DNA from those far off relatives. Had to start with a little of that first. Are you from Canada?
