TN Vital Records - The Vital Statistics Law, established by Chapter 30, Public Acts of 1913, was passed and became effective January 1, 1914, for statewide registration of birth & death registration. The Tennessee Office of Vital Records retains birth records from 1914.(NOTE:Beginning in 2014, birth records will begin transferring to the Tennessee State Library & Archive since we retain the birth records for 100 years.Then they will transfer on a year by year schedule.)Death records are only retained by our office for 50 years.Once the death records become 50 years old they are transferred to the Library & Archive also.Presently we have death records from 1960 to the present. Once the records are transferred to the L & A, they become true public records and anyone can access them. Please feel free to contact me if you need further assistance.
