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. This can be done by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section. You may also put a link to a blog post. 
                                                                             Let's celebrate and dance together. 
                                                                                  A No Eye Rolling Zone

My Happy Dance This Week:
        Finding an unexpected document while searching on for information on my Great Grandparents marriage had me diving into a family mystery. Discovering that my Great Grandfather not only had a wife that I didn't know about, he had children that my Grandmother never knew. Click on this link to read about The Tale of Jubal Ransom Early.
