Index To Tennessee Death Records
1908 - 1912
Courtesy of the Tennessee State Library and Archives
Registrations of births and deaths began in 1908 in Tennessee.
This index covers nearly 98,000 deaths occurring in Tennessee and recorded between 1908 and 1912. Although deaths were not registered as carefully and regularly as they were beginning in 1914, the index includes all extant records.
The index includes the name of the deceased, county, year of death and certificate number. This information can be used to request a copy of the death certificate from the Hamilton County Tennessee GenealogY Society. If no year of death was given on the certificate, it is noted in this index as "1908-12". Children with no given name are listed under "infant".
Death records in this time period do not give parents' names.
They do include the individual's age, occupation, place of birth and cause of death. Names have been transcribed as found on the original record, and may include spelling errors. There may also have been typographical errors made in preparing this index.
