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:  For several weeks, I have been working with a group of youth from my church to teach them how to add people to their family tree. There are those who are just beginning and some who have ancestors back for many generations.
It was my privilege to travel with them to visit church and US history sites and play at an amusement park. These are wonderful youth!  Our project continues with a goal for them to begin teaching the adults at church. My Happy Dance over the last couple of weeks has been spending time with these exceptional young people.
