Re: Alger originally Augur?
My family pronounces it Auger but spells it Alger - located in northern WI and east central WI. In this same area of east central WI, there are also families that pronounce Alger asAlger.

Thus far I haven't been able to locate where my family (Alger pronounced Auger) came from before WI.The Alger pronounced Alger family that lives here, have told me they came here from MN.
The earliest information I have on my family, they were in Winnebago County WI and later in Clark County WI. Then in the 1920's my grandfather came back down to Outagamie County, WI.
The Alger/Auger has always puzzled me too.I'd appreciate it if any information re: this would be passed along to me.
