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.

My Happy Dance Moment for this week: 

For three days this week, I had the opportunity to attend my first Midwest African American Institute (MAAGI). Due to COVID-19, it was held virtually. It w

It was fabulous. The presenters were knowledgeable about their topics and even though we were meeting via Zoom, new friendships were made. It was also wonderful to be able to speak to fellow genealogists I hadn't been able to see since RootsTech 2020 in February.
Here's my schedule for the week. No wonder I was doing the happy dance!

Just some of the amazing people I met and learned from.
MAAGI is open for registration for 2021 now! Will I attend? I hope so!

What had you doing the Happy Dance this week?
