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 Moment for this week: 

 My daughters went with me yesterday to fulfill a request for headstones photos in a nearby cemetery. Now, you'd think that my happy dance was the fact that they went with me! And, to start with it was! But, there was a second event that kept the dance going.
Once home, I uploaded the photos and then checked my email.

A distant cousin was visiting a cemetery where my 3rd great grandparents were buried and sent me a photo of their headstones! Wow! Genealogy Serendipity at work.
When we give, it always comes back. Maybe not as quickly as yesterday, but it will in time.

What is your happy dance moment for this week?
