Marriage Records[edit | edit source]

County marriage records are the earliest and most complete vital records for Tennessee. The records which have survived usually begin within a few years of each county’s organization. Marriage records from the earliest dates to the present are kept by the county clerk for each county. Since 1 January , duplicates have been sent to the Office of Vital Statistics.

The Family History Library has microfilm copies of most of the existing county marriage records from the county organization date to the early 's. Access these records through the FamilySearch Catalog Tennessee County Name. Many early Tennessee marriages to about are extracted and found in the International Genealogical Index. This index is accessed at Tennessee Marriages, For a breakdown of the Tennessee marriages indexed in the International Genealogical Index, visit Hugh Wallis's IGI Batch Numbers for Tennessee, US Copy the batch number, paste it into the appropriate search box in the FamilySearch link posted above in this paragraph.

About 20 Tennessee counties did not begin officially recording marriages in registers until a state law passed mandating the practice in [3] Many of the loose marriage licenses and bonds created before that time have been lost. Soderberg and Creekmore quote the Acts of Tennessee (, ch. , sec. 2) as follows:

It was not until that the clerks were required "to keep a well bound book, in which they shall register the names of the parties, and the date of issuance of each marriage license."[4]

The following counties, though many had been in existence for more than a decade, did not begin registering marriages until that time: Anderson, Benton, Campbell, Cannon, Carroll, Claiborne, Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Johnson, Lauderdale, Lincoln, Madison, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, Smith, Stewart, Tipton, and Weakley. A useful substitute for counties where marriages were not officially recorded, or where courthouses burned is:

  • Lucas, Silas Emmett. Marriages from Early Tennessee Newspapers . Easley, S.C.: Southern Historical Press, FHL book V2L.

In the s, W.P.A. workers indexed many Tennessee county marriage records. Edythe Whitley Rucker notes that when she went back to these courthouses several decades later to make new indexes, some of the records the W.P.A. found had gone missing for various counties, possibly due to theft. Therefore, it is crucial to search W.P.A. indexes for your county's marriages, in addition to more modern published indexes and online indexes, or you may overlook marriages that have disappeared.

FamilySearch now includes indexed Tennessee marriages. Indicate a surname, marriage "event" and a county name. Browse through the results for that surname. You may need to supply any variant spellings of the surname in separate searches.

Beginning in , Tennessee required registration of marriages with the state. These records have been indexed and are at the Office of Vital Statistics. The Family History Library does not have copies of these records. Reels of microfilm containing marriage records can be borrowed on inter-library loan from the Tennessee State Library and Archives.  Counties continue to keep their own records of marriages.  Many of these later marriages are available on microfilm at the Tennessee State Library and Archives or the county courthouse. See individual Tennessee counties in the wiki for the availability of county marriage records.

Many county marriage records are indexed with images at Ancestry's Tennessee State Marriages, ($) Be aware that this index is not complete for all counties. In particular, most Davidson county marriages after are not included.
