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:  The after Thanksgiving Black Friday sales brought a sale on DNA tests. After buying two, I asked my Mom's cousins if they would test for me . Mom has tested and the additional information from her cousins may help to find the biological parents of their Grandmother. My happy dance? They said yes!! 
What had you dancing this week? Can't wait to hear!

Help get the word out about sharing our Happy Dance moments.

  1. Finally getting my own genealogy office - after years of moving from the dining room to the living room and from one free bedroom to the other. Starting out new with an empty room! ~ Cathy

  2. Cathy, I am so jealous! I hope to one day get a room to set up my office too. Congratulations! A Happy Dance for sure!

    1. Thank you, Cheri. Now the work begins. Sorting through the papers from my early years. Then the BIG project: scan papers, letters, scrapbooks, photos, negatives, and slides. ~ Cathy
