Tennessee Vital Records Information

Tennessee Vital Records
Statewide registration of births and deaths began in 1914, with general compliance achieved by the early 1920s. Some earlier attempts were also made at recording these events, though they are fragmented. Marriages have been recorded on a county basis since as early as 1778, though many counties are incomplete or missing until as late as the 1850s.
For births and deaths between 1 July 1908 and 30 June 1912, and after 1 January 1914; and for marriages after 1945, write:
Tennessee Vital Records
Central Services Bldg. 1st Floor
421 Fifth Ave. North
Nashville, TN 37247-0450

For earlier records, write to the clerk of the county in question.
