    I am trying to locate a copy of my grandfather’s death certificate. He was born on 1-21-1914 in Detroit, Michigan, and died and buried in Maryville, Tennessee in August 1978. I do not know the day or what cemetery, however. Because my grandparents were divorced over a decade before I was born, I know very little about him. I haven’t even met him. I think I may have located the record through your service, but is there any way I can determine if it is the one I’m looking for before I order and pay for a copy of it? Thank you
