Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Your Ten Genea-Happy Moments

 Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 

Time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Come on, everybody, join in and accept the mission and execute it with precision. 

1) When you are performing genealogy research or writing, what makes you happy?  List ten genealogy moments that make you happy. 

2) Tell us about them in your own blog post, in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook post.  Please leave a link on this post if you write your own blog post.

Here's mine (not in any order):

* Tracking down an elusive ancestor using the Genealogical Proof Standard

* Having a distant cousin contact me via email or blog comment that I can help, or can help me, with ancestral family history

* Watching a genealogy video or TV Show that draws people to pursue family history

* Being quoted or praised by my genea-blogging colleagues

* Writing blog posts that will help other genealogists with their research

*  Writing ancestor genealogical sketches and transcribing records

* Praising and encouraging genealogy bloggers - leaving a Facebook post or a blog comment

* Challenging genea-bloggers and readers with Saturday Night Genealogy Fun posts - the results are often surprising to me and the bloggers!

* Going to any genealogy website or repository and browsing or searching the shelves, catalog or databases

* Finding useful genealogy records in online databases or in record hints or matches and crafting sources for them
