<br> Tennessee cemetery records often identify birth, death, and relationship information. They sometimes have insignia or symbols that provide clues about military service, religion, or membership in an organization, such as a lodge. Nearby markers may help identify children who died young, or women who were not recorded in family or government documents.
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) collection contains tombstone inscriptions from many Tennessee cemeteries. The DAR collection is described in the [[Tennessee
Genealogy|Tennessee Genealogy]] article.
Genealogical society members often copy and publish tombstone inscriptions.
