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 granddaughter Maddy joined me for a day at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, SC. She wanted to take the "From Slavery to Freedom" Tour given by Joseph McGill as part of a research project she is working on for school.  Maddy is researching Slave Ads and was interested to learn that there are three that have been discovered of freedom seekers from Magnolia Plantation. From the tour to walking through the main house, we had a wonderful day but also felt sorrow for the events that had taken place on that beautiful property,  We appreciate the efforts of people like Joe McGill of the Slave Dwelling Project who are working hard to change the narrative and tell the whole story of the enslaved and their enslavers. 

What had you doing the genealogy happy dance this week?
