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:  

This week I was able to look through original probate records from the 1880s. The earliest from 1842,
There were 13 books in all ranging from indexes to guardian ship to will books. 
If you haven't had the opportunity to research in original records, put it on the top of your list! Get out from behind your desk and get out to the archieves and courthouses. Not everything is online and nothing feels or smells like old books and documents. You'll be so glad you did!
I am still doing a jig just thinking about it!! 
                                                                                    Share your discovery!
                                                                                   Let the dancing commence!
