Genealogy: Tennessee death records are available online

Death records for the state of Tennessee are available online in three separate indexes. Tennessee began recording death records in 1908. For the first few years, recording was erratic. The Tennessee State Archives and Library features a searchable index to their death records for 1908-1912 at www.tennessee.gov/tsla/history/vital/death2.htm. This index contains almost 98,000 listings. The search results give the decedent's name, year of death, county of death, and certificate number. This information can be used to order the complete death record.

Death records for 1913 were not recorded in Tennessee. The second online index lists Tennessee deaths from 1914 to 1924 and is at www.tennessee.gov/tsla/history/vital/tndeath.htm. Search the index by year to get the name of the decedent, county of death, and volume and page number of the death certificate. Again, this information should be used when ordering the full death record.

The Memphis Public Library History and Genealogy Index Web site at tempo.memphislibrary.org/dadabik/program_files/sform.php allows the visitor to search Memphis/Shelby County deaths (1848-1945) from the Memphis Death Register books and yellow fever deaths recorded during an epidemic in 1878. Also included in the database are the Freedmen's Bureau marriage index of 1863-4.

Announcements

Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, and the National Association of Government Archive and Records Administrators have jointly announced that the Probate Division of the Summit County, Ohio, Common Pleas Court, headed by Judge Bill Spicer, has been awarded a grant to digitize the county's birth, death, and marriage records.

This project will focus on the marriage records from 1840 to 1980, births recorded prior to 1908, and deaths recorded prior to 1908. The public will have free access to a searchable name index which will be linked to the digital images of the original records at www.summitohioprobate.com.
