Celebration Sunday~Genealogy Happy Dance!

You know the dance. You know you've done it. The one every researcher does after finding something new. The one where you want to jump up and down and shout to everyone around that you found the document, contacted a cousin who has the family Bible, made a DNA connection or found a whole new branch to your tree. The one that is met with glazed stares and eye rolls.
                                                          Celebration Sunday is a place to share your discoveries. 
This is a weekly series to enable everyone to tell about their Genealogy Happy Dance moment. This can be done by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section. You may also put a link to a blog post. If you don't belong to a local club or society start one yourself. There are also groups that meet online




My Happy Dance This Week:  
 Several genfriends have shared new discoveries, brick walls coming down and joy in finding photos and other items belonging to their ancestors with me this week. It's so much fun to meet with and talk genealogy!  If you don't belong to a local club or society start one yourself. There are also groups online you can join. Often, researching our family is a solitary pursuit. Reach out and get together with others and share your passion.  We can all dance together!


What had you dancing this week?
