Each year as an ambassador I get the privilege of giving away a free 4-day pass to RootsTech, the worlds largest genealogy conference. Each year I wish I could give one to everyone who enters.

Congratulations Julie! Let's meet at RootsTech and take a photo of the two of us together!

Thanks to everyone who entered.

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. 

Share by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section or you may also put a link to a blog post telling about what had you dancing this week.

My Happy Dance Moment for this week:
 Speaking to groups about any genealogy subject makes me happy, but recently, I spoke to a group of young people from the local chapter of the Children of the Revolution.
The ages ranged from young elementary aged children to teenagers.
My goal? To help them have a desire to learn about who they are and where they came from. 
We filled out family trees and told stories about our ancestors. Some even came in period costume.
Nothing makes me celebrate more than seeing a connection start to form between generations.
My happy dance? Getting the next generation started on their journey! 

What is your happy dance moment for this week?


                                                                                              Share your discovery!
                                                                                         Let the dancing commence!
