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.




                                                                 
My Happy Dance This Week: After 18 months of learning I completed and submitted my last assignment for Progen 25! This has been a tough year and being able to complete this program is surely something to celebrate! 

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!




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

  2. First: congrats to you, Cheri! Second: this week I took a stay-cation with a genealogy focus & these were the things to dance about: 1-acquiring a bunch of old pictures from my mom's side of the family; 2-acquiring some pages of copyrighted books from the NYPL that taught me more about my ancestors (including ones I didn't know about before!); and 3-spending time in Guilford, CT, which included walking on my ancestor John Scranton's land and seeing a couple of old houses that he would have seen back in his day. And a dance for someone else: I was able to fulfill a Find-a-Grave request as I searched for another ancestor's grave, so that was a nice feeling!

  3. I worked on tracing descendants of one particular ancestor. It was an interesting week of discovering where the branches of the "family tree" ended, and where some branches flourished onward up to today's time !
