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: 
I spent last week attending the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburg (GRIP), virtually, right from my home office! My course selection was "Getting Your Hands Dirty-A Workshop in Land and Property Records" with course coordinator Kimberly Powell,
Other instructors in the class were Rick Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA and Jerry Smith, CG.
We met on Zoom each day with homework and handouts placed on Google Classroom.
From using maps, finding land records in both federal and land states to learning how to plat we were immersed in understanding how these records can help us connect families together.
What a great learning experience. Without the willingness of GRIP and the instructors to move to a virtual platform, I would not have been able to attend and build skills.
Thanks to all who worked so hard to bring this experience to all who were part of GRIP 2020!
