The burial and cemetery information contained in the TNGenNet Cemetery Database is taken from a variety of sources. Most of it comes from actual surveys of cemetery headstones. Some is taken from obituaries published in newspapers, death certificates and other sources. All of these sources including headstones are subject to error. The transcription process introduces unavoidable human error. The researcher is urged to consult the original source for the most accurate information.
