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:
 As you know, I spent a week in Raleigh, NC at the National Genealogy Society Conference. There were so many Happy Dance moments! 
My favorites? Learning about a group of high school students who shared their ancestor project with us, meeting new genfriends , catching up with old, and listening to some of the best in the genealogy community present methods to help strengthen my research skills.
 If you haven't attended a genealogy conference before, I encourage you to see what is available in your area or even across the country. There's nothing like spending time with those who understand that Happy Dance!

                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

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