I have been researching my family tree, and was curious about a great aunt. I found her in the Turnbull Clan ancestry. She was Verena Arvilla Munro married to Frank Nelson Turnbull, Sr. Only her name was listed with no other information. I am wondering if I could pass on her birthdate and deathdate as I found it in the Moreau (Munroe) Family Bible.
It was very exciting to find this great aunt. She passed away giving birth to her 3rd child. Both mom and child died.
Verena still has a brother and a sister still alive living in Nova Scotia.
Thank you for all of this information. It was very exciting to find my aunt's name at least.
Thanks for responding. I don't know a lot about Verena and Frank. I believe they lived in New Glasgow where he managed or owned a pub. He then moved to PEI (I think) and eventually to Ontario (I think).Verena Arvilla Moreau.

I had a chance to view your website. It's nice.
Here is the info I have on Verena. She was born 22 Sept 1916, probably Mill Village, NS. Her last name is recorded in the family Bible as Moreau. Long story short: She had a 4th great grandfather who was bad and his wife changed the name from Moreau to Munroe. I haven't been able to find out the details on what the bad stuff was.
I don't know how much information you would like to have on Verena. I have family branches all the way back to 1750 or earlier depending on which branch.Her children would be about the same age as my mother and her sisters. They would all be first cousins. I don't know but I assume she was buried in Pictou County. I'll check the cemeteries in the South Shore though to see if she was in fact buried in her home region.
Thanks again, Brian. I really appreciate this.
