When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

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.

                                                                           Let's celebrate and dance together.

                                                                                A No Eye Rolling Zone!

My Happy Dance This Week: 
   Over 40 people to attend our Grand Strand Genealogy Club meeting! We are a small club that has seen a lot of growth in the last year. There have been times when we have only had a dozen or more people.  Our board members did some celebrating as we watched the crowd coming in. A Happy Dance moment for sure!
What was yours?
                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

Are we kin? Please contact me. Together we can find our people.
Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Forgot to stop by yesterday. Here is my Happy Dance: http://www.trippingovermyroots.blogspot.com/2016/04/celebration-sunday-two-matthews.html

    1. Helping someone discover more about their ancestors and seeing your Grandfather's picture on instagram are both great reasons to do the Happy Dance! Thanks so much for sharing, Anna! Dancing with you!

  2. My happy dance this week was when preparing for the letter F in the A to Z Challenge, I found the baptismal record for Francis Gleeson in the Drouin records on Ancestry.com in an unexpected church. Sometimes it's a good idea to re-do a global search on Ancestry or Familysearch. You never know what new databases might be there!

    1. Good advice and example, Lisa! Congratulations on finding the baptism record! Thanks so much for sharing. Putting on those dancing shoes for you!
