When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

MyHeritage RootsTech After Party 2017~The Video!

The people at MyHeritage know how to throw a party! 
There were light refreshments, magicians, a photo booth, games, a dance floor and karaoke. Being able to relax and unwind with colleagues and friends was so appreciated!

This morning this video was in my inbox to share.

I even made the cut and am in the video at the beginning sitting with friends and watching the hilarious karaoke performances!

My phone died at the beginning of the event on Friday night but I was able to capture a few pictures.

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. This can be done by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section. You may also put a link to a blog post.
