This Week On My Family History Calendar

Jan. 10-
 The 142nd anniversary of the marriage of my paternal great great grandparents Arthur Wellington Baker (1857-1940) and Martha "Mattie" Victoria (Bradford) Baker (1952-1947). Arthur was 21 and Mattie was 16 when they married in Sumter County, SC.

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:
Two fun presentations had me doing a happy dance this week!
First was a presentation for the Virtual Genealogical Association:
Becoming a Professional Genealogist: From Passion to Profit"
 and second a lesson for a women's church group:
"Indexing: Helping to Gather Israel".

Each was so much fun as we discussed how to's with both presentations. 
Those attending asked great questions. One of my favorite things to do is to teach various aspects of genealogy and family history.  Still looking back and dancing!

What had you doing the genealogy happy dance this week?

                                                                                              Share your discovery!
