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: 
  Hopefully, next spring, my mom and I will be able to sail away to Bermuda for the cruise we've been planning for over a year. Covid-19 has canceled it twice. Maybe three attempts will be the charm?
When I was in elementary school my father was stationed at the base in Bermuda. Mom and I want to go and visit the sites and sounds we remember.
We'd also like to visit the two homes we rented while there. The problem is that since we had an APO address, we are not sure WHERE the homes were.
It has been decades!  I was able to get in touch with the local library and ask for a lookup in the city directory and one of the addresses was located.
The other? WE are still looking for clues.  And? We may have found it!
This week while cleaning out my master bedroom closet, I discovered a box of my old school papers my mom saved. In it I found an assignment to describe my neighborhood.  I wrote not only the name of the road but the name of the cottage we were living in! Yay! So glad mom saved so much for us to look back on!  Now, we just need to be able to get on that cruise and head back in time! Finding my assignment describing our neighborhood with the clues to help us get back there had me dancing!

What had you doing the Happy Dance this week?
