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: 
   A ship passenger list coming into Charleston Harbor included the name of Thomas McCrady born about 1798. He was a merchant traveling back to Charleston from Havana in August of 1822. My paternal third Great Grandfather was Thomas J. McCrady (1821-1896) from Sumter, South Carolina. The merchant Thomas just may be a clue to lead to who my Thomas' parents were! Happy Dance for sure!!
                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

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

  1. I received some photos in the mail this week of some ancestors I previously had no photos of and it honestly made me cry I was so excited!

    1. I love photos! It's so exciting to get new ones, especially of those ancestors we have never seen before. I have to tell you, I have cried about getting them too! So happy for you! Doing that dance! Thanks so much for sharing!
