The Melrose Beacon interviewed me and published a story about my involvement & experience with the Find A Grave web site.

After this story appeared, I have been inundated with requests to update records. This might be a good time to strengthen your patience skills because your request may take more than 30 days to complete.

Thanks for your understanding in this situation.

. TRANSFERS Of RECORDS - see below

Quincy Stroeing - I am a native of Melrose, Minn, which is in central Minnesota - 100 miles northwest of the Twin Cities in Stearns County.

Son of:
Alcuin H & Merena "Joie" (Welle) Stroeing

Grandson of:
Henry & Anna Nathe Stroeing
Anton & Apollonia Schoenberg Welle

In addition to the 4 sir names above, the other last names in my family tree are Ortmann and Gerads.


I frequently visit the 3 cemeteries in Melrose: St. Mary's (formerly St. Boniface), St. Patrick's and the town's oldest graveyard, Oak Hill Cemetery (formerly known as Melrose Burial Grounds)

I also frequently visit the cemeteries in the communities surrounding Melrose: Greenwald, Meire Grove, Spring Hill, New Munich, St. Martin, Lake Henry, Richmond, St. Cloud and others in Stearns County.

I try to take photos of the gravestone in the cemeteries above if a photo request has been submitted.



The three cemeteries in my hometown of Melrose, Stearns County, Minnesota are:
- Oak Hill Cemetery
- St. Patrick's Cemetery
- St. Mary's Cemetery (formerly St. Boniface)

I have documented these three cemeteries by creating Find A Grave burial records for every individual buried in the three cemeteries through 2011.

In addition to the burial records, gravestone photos have been posted. Links to the spouse, parents and children continue to be added if the genealogy connection is known.

St. Patrick's Cemetery - completed February 2011
Oak Hill Cemetery - completed March 2011
St. Mary's Cemetery - completed March 2012


TRANSFERS: If I created a burial record for your relative (direct line and within 4 generations), and the individual is not a relative of mine, you can request a transfer of ownership of the burial record by emailing me.

My preference is to click the "Edit" tab in the upper right corner of the memorial record. Then click the "Suggest a Correction" link.

Please include the following in your transfer request email:

- your first, last name & Find A Grave member ID
- the first last name on the burial record
- the burial record number
- your relationship to the individual

Please allow a generous amount of time for processing your request.

NOTE: Please do not blindly transfer your records to me. Disposing your records on other Find A Grave contributors is disrespectful to both the deceased and the contributor.

Danke Schoen for Winter memorials
Quincy.... Linda & I just returned from a 45th anniversary cruise (along with my sister & my former USN shipmates... a bit of a story, but one that can be fun to share when we have more time).

I just wanted to take a second right now to express my appreciation for both initially creating the Find A Grave memorials for George & Susanna Winter. I will make some time this weekend to add the relevant life date & family links from my research database.

As always, mi Amigo... it is a pleasure working with your. Namaste, "PJ" Braun , ETCM/USN (retired)

Hi- I have added a few things to his memorial. I will post a photo of his headstone as soon as it's placed. Do you still need to manage it?

Hi Quincy. I am doing family research for a friend and Anna (Lois) Ellering is her 2x Great Grandmother. I have a copy of her death card and it states that she died on 1 July 1906 as a result of child birth. She had a boy named, Gerhard. Do you know why her headstone shows her DOD as 17 June 1906?

My daughter's husband's family is related to Leona's husband Gus through several veins. I was wondering if I could attach your story and photo of Leona to their family in

In your story it says they were married in Minneapolis but their marriage certificate says Stearns County. Do you know why that is?

By the way Gus' parents are Barney (Bernard) Lembeck and Rosalie Utecht.

Danke Shoen for transfer of Rolfzen memorials
Quincy... once again I am in your debt... BOTH for initially creating the Find A Grave memorials for "Whitey" & "Marcy" (Bauer) Rolfzen AND for you willingness to transfer them over to my care. I'll get busy adding some details & linking them to other family members.

Namasté, "PJ" Braun
