|Citations—Funeral Home Records||| Print ||
Funeral Home records are business records. Usually a family member provides the information to the funeral home employee during a period of grief. There may be errors due to the time the information is being collected or human errors transcribing the information from notes to the record. Take note of the informant to determine the validity of the information.
Elements of the citation could include: the name and address of the funeral home, the name of the record, book and page number, if applicable, the name of the deceased, the name of the person providing the information, the present location of the record, and the format of the record. If viewed on microfilm, include the repository and microfilm number.
