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:  There are some amazing records out there that give us information about our family. Whether it's seeing my ancestors mentioned or those of a client, it's always exciting. Looking through records for a new research project, I have smiled this week at a clients' ancestor for trying to convince the U.S. government to repay him for the items Union Soldiers took from him during the Civil War in a denied Southern Claims Commission file and read with interest a Slave Narrative that named not only her owner, the owner's son and the  places she lived on during and after the war. 
There are so many records to search beyond birth, marriage, death, and census.
What did you discover this week that had you dancing?
      Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!
