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. If you don't belong to a local club or society start one yourself. There are also groups that meet online

My Happy Dance This Week:  
 A reader left me a comment and shared a link to a site containing digitized images of yearbooks from the high school both of my grandmothers attended. I have a copy of my maternal grandmother's but not my paternal grandmother Mary (Baker) Hudson's  (1920-2010).  I was able to search through and locate it. Although I had seen a graduation photo, it was fun to see it in the yearbook along with the quote by her name with the list of her school activities.The "Baby Brawl section had a photo of her as a young child,  she was pictured with a group of friends and she had signed her name in the autograph section!

My maternal grandmother and her sisters attended the same high school so I looked for each of the sisters in the years they would have graduated and found photos and other information about them. I have passed what I discovered on to their daughters. 
Once again, blogging has been the source of a connection to family information!  Another grateful Happy Dance!                                                        Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!
