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:
SLIG 2021 was a success! Moving to a virtual platform was a definite change to the yearly get together in Salt Lake City every January but the week of learning and stretching our minds was the same! 

On top of being a student in Karen Stansbury's DNA class, I presented lectures in Josh Taylor's Mastering Online Searches class. My first time as a member of the faculty at SLIG was a little intimidating but in the end, I had so much fun!

Next up is SLIG Extended including workshops and events throughout the week.

Week 2 of SLIG begins on January 23rd. Can't wait for another week of learning!
