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: 
Over 300 youth ages, 14-18 attended a church youth conference this past Thursday through Saturday in Charleston, SC, I was privileged to attend as a chaperone and to teach a workshop on family history!  Seven 30 minute lessons in a row! 
Exhausting? Yes! Worth it? Yes!
The FamilySearch App showed us those who were related.....I found lots of new cousins!
We played with the other features of the app,  learned about some cool projects such as indexing and helping out with Findagrave and learned how important it was to learn your ancestor's stories.
I was so impressed with how many of the youth were already working on something to do with genealogy, Many came up afterward to tell me a family story or an exciting find they had experienced! 
Love the next generation of family history researchers!
I will be dancing and celebrating this experience for a while to come!

What's your happy dance moment for this week?
