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.




                                                                 
My Happy Dance This Week: Yesterday, I was privileged to spend the day at the Charleston, SC Family History Workshop where I taught a Beginning Genealogy and a Genealogy Blogging class. So wonderful to see people get excited about learning. One lady followed my steps to setting up a blog while I was demonstrating and got hers up during class! The look of "aha! I get it" on faces of those wanting to gain more skills and be better researchers got me doing that dance! What about you? What had you doing the Happy Dance this week?

                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!




Looking forward to reading about your Happy Dance moment!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I was happy to see this post come through my reader this morning. I do have a "happy" to share, but I have a question first. Which image in your post are we supposed to use in our post to show that it is a part of your Celebration Sunday?

    Now for my happy, which I will be putting on my blog PS Annie! after I hear back from you about the image. I found an article in a newspaper from 1904 about an Old Soldiers' Celebration in Pickens, South Carolina hosted by the Pickens Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. In this article, my 3rd great-grandfather Berry M. (Madison) Pressley is listed as one of the recipients of the Cross of Honor for his service to the Confederacy. I have hit many brick walls trying to find out anything about this grandpa and was very happy to find this!

    Have a blessed day.

  2. Hi!

    I also meant to say in my comment yesterday that your "Happy Dance" sounds like a fun experience. Charleston is such a beautiful place and it is fun to watch folks come alive with a love for genealogy.

    Here is the link to my "happy dance" post: PS Annie!

    Have a blessed day.
