Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find links for the memorials I create so I am happy to add information and make corrections.

I create memorials to connect families so I am happy to do transfers when the request includes information. HOWEVER I NO LONGER BLINDLY TRANSFER to anyone who sends an edit to me that just says "transfer to me and I will update it." This is not because I don't want to do transfers but because I have done several transfers only to find out later that they were the wrong person and the new "caretaker" is not interested in fixing the mistake.

With that said I love receiving edits and corrections! Especially with the enhancements to the edit feature. It's a big goal, but I have a goal of trying to link every memorial I have created to at least one family member (and more if I can find them) and welcome all the help I can get.

Janda Line
Hi! Are you related to the Janda line of South Dakota? My mother's friend was a Janda and I would like to link her up if I could find her family. Thanks.

Roland, Bernie, Marguerite Queneau
Good morning Mary,

Margot sent that Roland Queneau did Neptune Society. Turns out that is cremation. He may not have a niche anywhere, either.

I did find two items about him. The first one is at http://www.nursing.umn.edu/Foundation/scholarships/UndergraduateGraduate/index.htm :
Alva Wipperman Queneau Memorial Scholarship
Established by the late Roland Queneau in memory of his beloved wife, Alva Wipperman Queneau ('24 BSN), this scholarship is intended to help recruit and retain promising full-time nursing students. at the University of Minnesota.

The second one is at http://blog.lib.umn.edu/mmf/news/scholarships/2008/scholarship-honors-sisters-contributions-to-public-health-nutrition-marguerite-queneau-was-never-inc.html

While it is about the scholarship for Marguerite Queneau at the U of Minn it starts with a picture of my mother Esther McNaull Oyster Queneau and Dr. Bernard Russell Queneau. There are six paragraphs with good details about Marguerite. Then one about the family & parents. Next comes a mention of Roland. The remainder concerns the scholarship.

I definitely would not have a clue as to how we can document Roland if he does not have a grave or a niche.

Roland & BRQ
There were two more brothers. I'm not sure where Roland Queneau is buried. We will be sending the Bernard "Bernie" Russell Queneau obituary soon. We have been writing it today. He is also really interesting - and has made lots of blogs & national news this week.

Step-sister Margot who has been the source of at least half of this information tonight and I may not have any more time to work on this for a while. Our other two sisters are in Pittsburgh area already.

Margot would like to work with her cousins to update other family records - many of their relatives are all in that same cemetery that you are working with.

Hi Mary,

Earlier today I found this information about Marguerite. I don't know whether you want to load any of it onto your records.

Other Nye sisters
Hi Mary,

She was born Dorothy Irene Nye. Married a Cargill first and then a Schultz. She was sister to Henrietta C. Nye Queneau. See your entry for her below the next paragraph.

There was another sister, Sarah Elizabeth Nye, born ca 1916. She married first a Manford Robinson and then someone else whose name currently escapes my stepsister. She donated her body to the U of M med school, so there may be no marked grave.

Dorothy Cargill Schultz

Henrietta N Queneau


Mom died in Allegheny County. Not Philly

Here's the link for Henrietta's find-a-grave http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=124601273

I think I have it set up now to receive a message from you as a new contributor to find-a-grave.

Also Henrietta C. Nye before marriage. On 28 June 1941 she married Dr. Bernard Russell Queneau.

obituary
Hi Mary,
My stepfather just died and he will be interred with his wife. You documented her grave.
We are writing an obituary. Wondering whether we can publish a short version in the paper and leave a longer version available on the web which will remain available to posterity.
Thus I am contacting you to see whether you would be willing to create a linked find-a-grave entry for him and upload the longer obituary to it?
I am also an amateur genealogist and love when I find these longer tributes.
- Jean
