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.

I wanted to thank you for what you do. I don't know my dads side that well which make the effort of putting a family tree together rather difficult, and i don't live in the county. you have helped me find my great- grandparents and several family members after that. it helps me feel close to them and closer because of the pictures you added up as well. Thank you So much :)

Danke Shoen for "photo work" on Bernice Braun memorial
Quincy... thanks so much for both taking the photo of the new/replacement memorial stone. I really do appreciate the collaboration/support in the on-going process of documenting family members. Namaste, "PJ"

Might be easier for you to make those corrections...have transferred all of the "Dierkhissing" memorials" to you...did delete the Herbert Dierkhissing memorial...

There is a grave directory posted at the cemetery..that is where I took my info....and of course the gravestones...

If there are any other memorials you'd like transferred...just let me know...

Hi Quincy,

Thank you for adding my uncle Richard Pohlmann's records and photos to find a grave. I don't get to Melrose too often and your time and dedication to this service is very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for finding that newspaper article on Zeno !!

and I see you have completed Saint Mary's aka Saint Boniface also !! way to Go !!! keep up the good work Quincy.. and thanks again !!

I wonder if you could add aka Saint Boniface to Saint Mary's Cemetery ?? "Saint Mary aka Saint Boniface" for the title ? I think that would be very beneficial to those who are researching to know it used to be called Saint Boniface..if not they keep looking for saint bon's but can't find it.. My great grands were married at St Boniface Church in Stearns County..

I find it interesting that we have St Boniface Church here in Uniontown !

Oh boy..and just look at all the Moser's that come up now in Stearns County, and the neighboring counties, now that have done all this work !!! WOO HOO !! THNAK YOU THANK YOU !!!

Danke Shoen for feedback on Joseph Geris memorial
Quincy, thanks for the attention-to-detail AND for taking the time to send me the note so I could correct my error. While I won't be bragging about it, since it reflects an inattention to detail... the source of my error was some sloppy use of the drop-down menu.

Your message gave me a chance to make it right... & I'm grateful. r/ "PJ"

RE: Thelen Family
Although John & Mary Thielen are distant relatives, I appreciate you sending me this link. That is pretty special event they had going on in church.

Thanks again,
