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: 

My maternal grandfather, Gilbert Ernest Roberts, died while serving in WWII. The letters he wrote to his parents were saved and given to me. 
I thought I had him all until a visit to the home his parents built in about 1949.
There was one more letter! And this one seems to be one of the last one he wrote-at least to them. Gilbert died on 29 September 1944. The letter is dated August 18, and was excited about his upcoming birthday and turning 24.

What is your Happy Dance Moment?
Please share and let's celebrate together!


                                                                                              Share your discovery!
                                                                                         Let the dancing commence!
