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:  
Another cousin connection, this time through a Find a Grave memorial site I created for my 3rd great grandmother Martha (Mathis) Dorrity. Because my name is on on the page, he was able to click on my information and send me a message. We have a connection through her husband a generation before. This is another example of why we need to share our ancestor's information anywhere we can.  We never know who may see and can add to our knowledge about them. Dancing that dance! Were you?

                                                                        Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!
