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. 

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: 
Once a week some of my genealogy friends and I gather together to film GenFriends.
A Genealogy Chat show I post on my YouTube channel.
This week was a very special episode with the teams from Relative Race Season 6 and Team Black of Season 4, Those who watch the show know how close the teams become.
Season 6 teams have a bond, unlike the previous ones. Their love for one another shines through every time they get together.  
So, I was thrilled when Ray from Team Red reached out to me and asked if the teams could come back on the show. It was so much fun the first time how could we refuse?
Also invited were Joe and Jerica Henline, Team Black, from Season 4.
They had never met! What fun to watch them being embraced, loved and supported by the Season 6 teams. Indeed, a family.  Those of us on the panel felt like we belonged.
And? In this crazy time, we all need as much love, support, and family as possible. Thanks to the teams from Relative Race for joining us on GenFriends.
A memorable Happy Dance indeed!
