I know that here in Tennessee the funeral homes let us go into the records and do our research. Most of them do it with no problem and offer to help. Others do it grudgingly (the big corporation ones). But we can go see them.

I haven't personally, but I do know of one lady who was literally loaned the books from
way back and she has made this into a book. Also another lady from the same area is
doing another funeral home listing. If I understood it correctly and I think I did, the
funeral home is lending her the books and she is copying them.
