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: A cousin connection again this week! If you don't have a blog, I would highly recommend starting one. It's a fantastic way to tell your family stories, and get them out in a way that is searchable and can connect you with others. A family member met a new person at her church and recognized his last name as one she had just read about on my blog. Now the fun begins as we try to figure out where our lines may tie together!
                                                                                          Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

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


  1. I've been dancing ever since Dara of Black Raven found baptism records for my great-grandmother and all her siblings. Now I have been able to find the sisters and their children living in New York. I have been devoting each Monday in March to their stories. It is exciting for me to learn about my dad's side of the family.

    1. All of their baptism records! Wow! Dancing with you, Wendy!Thanks for sharing!
