Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance! A Humbling Recognition


 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 this week?

I am honored to receive the Lou D. Szucs Distinguished Service Award, announced at the NGS Conference yesterday.  Working with the board as Vice President of Society and Management has been a pleasure. We began a new course after the merger with FGS to honor our commitment to Societies, Libraries, Museums, and other Organizations. And congratulations to all the other award winners this weekend. I feel humbled to be in your company.

  1. Congratulations, Cheri. Such a well-deserved award for all you do for the genealogy community!

  2. Congratulations! You're an inspiration! I hope I can come as far with my skills and help as many people as you do some day! My happy dance moment is finally starting a blog for my family history! Hopefully I can keep the motivation going to turn it into something good!
