Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance! Finding Land Records

 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 that you found the document, contacted a cousin with the family Bible, made a DNA connection, or found a 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 weekly series enables everyone to tell about their Genealogy Happy Dance moment.

My Happy Dance Moment for this week: 

Taking what I learned at SLIG last week, I looked for more information on my Early families land in Iredell County, NC. Remembering that there was mention of Dower Lands in an 1899 probate package, I went back to look at it again.

It made so much more sense coupled with the land record I discovered.

Now, I can plat the land given to my great great grandmother after the death of her husband that contained "the home dwelling and out buildings".

A reminder that it's always good to go back and look at records you  already have. 

Now to figure out what happened to that property after she moved in with her son when she was too old to live by herself. 

What's your Happy Dance Moment?
 Please share, and let's celebrate together!
