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:  
 I flew toSalt Lake City and was able to spend a couple of days with my friend Annette and her family. We have known each other since we were 12!  We woke up to 8 inches of snow yesterday morning. I haven't seen this much snow in years! 
Off to the first day of SLIG this morning! Looking forward to seeing so many genealogy friends and learning from the best!

 What had you dancing this week? Please share so we can celebrate together!

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

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


  1. I started a new blog this week, Seedlings from Dawning Genealogy.

  2. Instead of confirming three generations back in the family tree, I found information which disproves a relationship at the 5th great-grandparents level. The tree is pruned. The post on the family has turned into a proof argument. I might not be dancing but I feel good about the process I went through to get it fixed. Now all I have to do is write the post by Friday. ~ Cathy

    1. Cathy, although it may not be a happy dance, you are right, it is progress on your tree. Sometimes we do have to prune! Thanks for sharing!

  3. My happy dance? I was able to be a first-time attendee at SLIG and meet my ProGen classmate, Cheri Hudson Passey, in person! It was fun meeting so many people and learning so much.

    1. It was so wonderful to meet you in person, Lynn! I hope we can do it again! So fun!
