Funeral Home Records

Have you considered contacting the funeral home who handled your ancestor's funeral to see if they have information that could aid you in your search?

Remember that these records are private business records with the funeral home does not have to share with you--be extra polite and considerate.

There may be additional information that was not in the obituary, details about who paid the funeral bill, who else was buried in the set of graves as your ancestor, etc.

Or there may be no records at all.
