Obituaries after 2001 are available full-text online (most reliable for 2009-forward). Click on the Obituaries link under The Tennessean heading. In "Name of Deceased" search box, type in the name of the person you are searching for; last name first (ie. Jones, George). Each obituary record includes an “Indexing (details)” section that lists the publication date. Use the this information if you wish to find the obituary on microfilm.
