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: 
   Two new cousin connections this week from blog posts. One published this week and one from a few months ago. Both have sent me information on the family lines we have in common. Finding those connections is what it's all about!
                                                                                           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. This week I was able to provide a cousin with her first glimpse of a second great-grandmother with two photos found in my step-mother's basement!


    1. How wonderful to be able to introduce her to her Great Great Grandmother! Thanks for sharing. Dancing with you!

  2. After slowly working through the land records of my 5th great-grandfather I finally located the land on a map and figured out how to add a Google map to my blog. I think final post on Henry turned out really well! http://wp.me/p4hjwJ-2uG ~ Cathy

    1. Love land records! Congratulations on finding the records and on locating them via google. Putting the map on your blog post was a bonus! You are right, it turned out really well! Dancing shoes on!

    2. Thank you Cheri for taking the time to stop by and post a comment! ~ Cathy
