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:  Writing the recap for my post "Help From the Other Side" for the In-Depth Genealogist Blog was a lot of fun. The experiences shared by those who have had strange and downright eerie things happen as they have researched their ancestors had me feeling grateful for the help I have received. I do believe that our ancestors want to be found and will assist us if we will let them. That is something to dance about.

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

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


  1. I had library duty yesterday and got some much needed research done on the side. I added one set of 5th great-grandparents, three sets of 6th great-grandparents, and one set of 7th great-grandparents to my family tree. There may be more things to dance about once I get all the information inputted. Nothing supernatural - just putting my nose in the right books.

    1. Congrats on adding to your tree! Hope it leads to many more celebrations!
