Welcome to the Tennessee
USGenWeb Obituary Project!

Nan Starjak, Tennessee Coordinator

Volunteers Needed!
This is a new project for Tennessee and we hope to make it a success by getting many local newspapers & funeral homes involved! We need people willing to transcribe newspaper obituaries that have agreed to let us print them. Please look at the list below and if you would like to volunteer to transcribe these papers please contact me, Nan Starjak.

If you have an obituary to submit please click here for the SUBMISSION FORM or contact the Tennessee State Coordinator for the Obituary Project:  Nan Lambert Starjak.

How you can help:
Go through old newspapers (published prior to 1923) and copy the obituaries found. We will also accept single obituaries that you have in your files. You can submit either complete obituaries or abstracts (just the facts) of the obituaries. Check with your local library to see what old newspapers they have on microfilm. The California Obituary Project will abide by today's copyright laws. We will no longer put online obituaries published after December 31, 1923, unless you were the original author of the obituary, or the newspaper in question grants permission to reprint the obituary, or the obituary is that of a family member (you must give the relation), or you submit an abstract of your obituaries. 
A good abstract should include the paper's name, name of deceased, age, date of death, and date that the obituary appears in the paper (in parenthesis ).
