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:

Last week was spent attending "In-Depth African American Genealogy" coordinated by LaBrenda Garrett-Nelson for SLIG 2021 Week 2.  It was fabulous! Case studies walked us through the process of researching the enslaved. We learned about plantation records and my favorite-The Southern Claims Commission Records.  A two-part session on researching in the West Indies was fascinating.   As usual, my brain was exploding at the end with all the new knowledge I gained as a result of this course!

Next up? SLIG Academy begins the second week of February! Always so much to learn!

What had you doing the genealogy happy dance this week?
