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: 
On July 13, 2019, the registration for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and the Salt Lake Academy for Professionals opened.  (SLIG)
Anyone who is familiar with these two weeks of learning knows the classes fill up fast and you need to have your fingers ready to go to sign up for the classes you want.
I came late to the game since I was attending a Genealogy Workshop in Columbia, SC and wasn't sure if there would be anything left for me once I got home and was ready to register!
Luckily, I was able to take one of the last couple of available seats in Josh Taylor"s course
"You're Invited: Public Speaking from Concept to Delivery"
One of my favorite things to do is to teach genealogy methodologies and I am excited to learn new skills and get better at giving presentations to groups and societies. 
As for the first week, I am currently waitlisted for two of the institute courses.
Hopefully, more spots will open up and I will be able to get into one of my top two choices.
If not, there are still wonderful learning opportunities to take advantage of!
