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:  Being able to do some research at two archives this week and attend the South Carolina Genealogical Society Annual Workshop was so much fun!  Locating a new name to add to my family tree had me doing that Happy Dance! You never know what you are going to find in any type of record. This new person was listed in the Court of Common Pleas where he was having a dispute over some money issues. A new lead from an often unused source.  What had you dancing this week?
      Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Helping you climb your family tree,


  1. I visited two archives yesterday. No research but I learned things about Luxembourg which are not mentioned in the history books. Who would have known the records could be in another country?
