1963 Tennessee death certificates are here!

Tennessee death certificates become public record after 50 years. The Tennessee death certificates for 1963, the most recent public records, are now available at the McClung Collection. Although both Familysearch.org and Ancestry.com have made death certificates available on their databases, the more recent certificates are only available on microfilm. A complete explanation of birth and death records in Tennessee and how to access them is available from the Tennessee State Library and Archives.
