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: An email notification of new hints on ancestry.com lead me to learn more information on my Walker line from Sumter County, South Carolina. I was able to locate a will which included names and gave me a new family unit to add to my tree. Finding the will also allowed me to add to the Slave Name Roll Project. Benjamin Walker's will included names of the enslaved. Putting the names in a post and including it in the project hopefully will help their families find them.  
 How about you? What had you dancing this week?

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

Looking forward to reading about your Happy Dance moment!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
