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. 

Share by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section or you may also put a link to a blog post telling about what had you dancing this week.

My Happy Dance this week:

For those of you who follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you saw the photo I posted last week of my genealogy serendipity moment! I discovered a client's ancestor was a French Huguenot and may have a plaque to honor him in the French  Huguenot Church in Charleston, South Carolina. 
A few months ago I visited that church. I was there to be in a spot where some of my ancestors worshiped long ago. Several pictures were taken of the interior.
I suddenly realized I may have captured the plaque honoring my client's ancestor in one of my photos! Quickly pulling up the photos from that day on my phone I discovered I had done just that!
There on the wall under a beautiful window was the plaque of Jacob Forney! 
It was so much fun to send her the picture and explained the "coincidence"
Genealogy serendipity strikes again causing a big happy dance for both of us!
