Users familiar with the Blount County site have probably come to greatly appreciate the work that has gone into the creation of the newspaper obituaries and funeral home records on the site. Glenn recently submitted an update to the records of the Memorial Funeral Home by adding records from 2002-2006.
With this addition, I took the opportunity to consolidate all of these records into one database that now spans 1867-2006 and has more than 40,000 entries! The Death Records Database is available here and includes:
- Obituaries from a collection of Blount County newspapers from 1867-1940
- Obituaries from the Maryville Enterprise newspaper from 1906-1960
- Memorial Funeral Home Records from 1962-2006
- Miller Funeral Home records from 1941-2001
- other misc death (death certificates, microfilm records, etc.) as submitted by myself and other users
