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:
 My local genealogy club had a workshop yesterday. After much planning and long hours putting together my presentation, it all went off without a hitch....well except for a couple of problems with the internet connection. Other that we had a great day of learning and sharing. It's always great to hang out with genfriends!

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

Looking forward to reading about your Happy Dance moment!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Helping you climb your family tree,


  1. Congratulations on your successful presentation! What did you talk about? My celebration for the week is finding the WW2 Navy service records for a 2nd cousin's other grandfather. Started out with a common name, and after some trial and error I was able to nail down the right one before going to Fold3 where I found his muster rolls. My cousin was thrilled.

    1. What a great find for your cousin! Congratulations! My presentation was on organizing. We had a large crowd of eager to learn genealogists! Thanks for contributing your Happy Dance moment!
