Tennessee Public Records

Public records can reveal a ton of information about people in our lives. Tennessee public records are readily available and you can request a search from the state by providing some basic information about the individual. For example, on a birth certificate you may view such information as the person’s mother and father’s name, the physician who attended the birth and where and what time the person was born. It might help you fill in a puzzle about a family tree or to discover whether or not a person is telling the truth about his or her age. Public records may also include criminal information and arrest records and prevent hiring or letting someone near you who has committed crimes – either misdemeanors or felonies. Some records in Tennessee may go back as far as 1874, but most only date to 1914. If you’re searching for records older than that, you may need to go through the state archives. Some state records may be missing some vital information because of the way data was recorded during the early days of registering the events. To request a search, you’ll need to complete the appropriate form and send it to the Vital Records office at the following address:

Tennessee Dept. of Health
Vital Records Department
Central Services Bldg.
First Floor
421 5th Ave., North
