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:  Another very unexpected surprise this week. I received an email letting me know that my entry was chosen as the winner of the SLIG Scholarship for First Time Attendees. For anyone who might not know, the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy is held every January and provides week-long classes in intermediate and advanced topics. The class that I have chosen to take is "Taking Your Research to the Next Level" taught by Paula Stewart- Warren.  I am beyond grateful to have been given this opportunity. First RootsTech and now SLIG. It's going to be a great two weeks in Salt Lake! Happy, Happy Dance!

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

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