Tennessee Newspaper Obituaries are a rich source of genealogy data.  These obituary search tools will help you locate old and new obituaries online. If you can't find an obituary online, try contacting a library in the area you are searching.  Most libraries have their local newspapers on microfilm.  Some will offer indexes of the obituaries to help you locate the obituary you need.  If distance presents a problem, try joining a  Tennessee genealogy mailing list for the locality and perhaps you will locate someone in the area who can do a newspaper lookup for you.
