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.

My Happy Dance This Week: 
  Contact from tree different DNA matches through may lead to solving a family mystery in one line and moving my research back a line or two in another. A third match sent me a copy of a manuscript that he has been writing on a family line. Three in one week! Doing that Happy Dance for sure!
What were your discoveries this week?
                                                                                           Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

Are we kin? Please contact me. Together we can find our people.
Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. It's a simple find, but I found a funeral record for someone in my line yesterday which named her parents. I had her father's name, but didn't know her mother's maiden name, so I definitely did a little jig!

    1. Definitely worth dancing about! Finding those maiden names can be so hard sometimes! Congratulations on the find. Funeral Home Records can be a wonderful recourse! Thanks for sharing Michelle! Doing that jig with you!

  2. I received an email from someone who had just learned through DNA testing about her Jollett connection. She is now following my blog by email.

    1. A new cousin connection! Doing that Happy Dance for sure! Thanks for sharing, Wendy!
