Late Night #GenealogyHappyDance

, Late Night #GenealogyHappyDance

This video was inspired by a wonderful helper at Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio. I said if she made a certain discovery, I would video a genealogy happy dance. She found the discovery and told me to get the video camera ready! My son was a great sport in recording this video and my daughter spliced it together. We’re not professional videographers but this is the reenactment of my receiving a discovery on FamilySearch and in my email box.

Have you made moments that make you want to see “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang? What’s your favorite tune to hum when you strike genealogy gold? Share your genealogy happy dance with the hashtag #GenealogyHappyDance so we can see you in action!

Merry Christmas. May your family tree be filled with lots of presents, even if your real Christmas tree has few presents underneath. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, may you still find great discoveries for your family tree.
