This is the first time I have noticed anyone using anything like JunQ
1906 as a date.
But, I have only been frequenting this and the Family Origins lists for
about seven years.
I have seen a few posts where people wanted to use the 2nd qtr 1906 or
something like that, but June quarter?

I would suggest that you use something like:
3. About – Near a date (ex. about 1 Jan 1900)

5. Between – A date which is between two dates (ex. between 1 Jan 1900
and 5 Jan 1900)
