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: 
   Teaching people how to begin their genealogy journey is a joy for me. I was able to do just that twice this week. Two great classes where I saw the light going on in my student's eyes. What fun!  Dancing for sure! 
What's causing you to Celebrate?
                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

Are we kin? Please contact me. Together we can find our people.
