Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance! A Virtual Week in Pittsburg.


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.

My Happy Dance Moment for this week: 

Last week I attended GRIP- The Genealogy Research Institute of Pittsburg.

Held virtually again in 2022, GRIP courses are held in June and July.

My course was Mastering the Art of Genealogical Documentation taught by Tom Jones.

Every genealogist knows how important it is to cite sources and in this class, we were taught to understand the why and how of crafting them.  Creating citations can be frustrating and confusing as we try and make sure they are correct. This course taught me that I do know the basic principles and with more practice, I will be able to write them on the go and do it in a way that is up to genealogy standards.

I highly recommend this course!

Did you go to GRIP or are you planning on going to the July sessions? 

I'd love to hear from you!

What's your Happy Dance Moment?
