Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance! Teaching at SLIG Fall Virtual


  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 that you found the document, contacted a cousin with the family Bible, made a DNA connection, or found a 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 weekly series enables everyone to tell about their Genealogy Happy Dance moment.

My Happy Dance Moment for this week: 

Being one of the instructors for D. Joshua Taylor's SLIG  Fall Virtual course: "Advanced Techniques for Mastering Online Searches," is a happy dance moment all by itself, but I got an extra one this week after teaching the second of the Hands-On classes.  The hands-on sessions give tips and tricks for searching the big four- FamilySearch, Ancestry, MyHeritage, and Findmypast, and then give the students time to go and search using what they have learned. They then come back and report what they found.  During their search time, after discussing MyHeritage and suggesting using their newspaper collection, a huge happy dance moment occurred for one participant.  She decided to try the newspaper collection for information on an ancestor and found an obituary giving her the needed facts! Her ancestor's obituary was included in a Montreal newspaper that was part of a collection she didn't know about on MyHeritage! You never know where you will find the one source that leads you to your ancestor! 

What's your Happy Dance Moment?
