About: Mago Bill and me

A page to introduce Mago Bill and me.

I am an old US citizen living in Colombia.

I intend to post about the nature of this blog on a new Sitemap page soon. I knew nothing of Mago until my lovely and talented sister, Gerry Hook, the family genealogist, told me that she had found our paternal great grandfather under the name M. William Sheehan!    Soon she had enough documentation to list him on her genealogy website. A bit later we found that the “M” was for Mago. I said, “Mago Bill, what a great name!” Gerry feigned disapproval for a name so flippant for our progenitor (Bill is a short form for William).  I became more taken by the name as the months passed. Mago, my great grandfather, and particularly his name, inspired me. And is the inspiration for this blog.

You can be pretty sure that I will post more about Mago, especially the name, later.

That’s all about Mago for the time being. Now on to some contact info.

Before I forget, I am an Old U.S. citizen living in Colombia. At the moment I am living in Rionegro, Antioquia. I have been moving around.


I believe that the best way for you to contact me will be through this blog’s “comment” function. Getting that function working will be high on my “To Do List.”

Welcome to Mago  Bill!  I hope to thrive on hearing from you!
