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. This can be done by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section. You may also put a link to a blog post. 
                                                                             Let's celebrate and dance together. 
                                                                                  A No Eye Rolling Zone

 My happy dance this week:

    While looking over some school papers of my Grandmother's, ones I had read before, I discovered a page with shorthand written on the back. Posting a picture on some facebook genealogy group pages, I asked for some help with transcribing it. The response was that it looked like words to a song. It was! Tribute to Love is my post about that sweet discovery.

                                                                                        Share your discoveries!
                                                                                        Let the dancing commence!

  Are we kin? Please contact me. Together we can find our people.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
