      7. Title: Tennessee Death Records, 1949-2005
        Author: Shelby County, Tennessee, Register
        Note: Bills itself as a partial index to statewide death certificates but does not explain “partial”. The original version covered data from 1949 to 2005 with several errors. Data for 1949 was sparse, and there were other losses, such as few records May-December 1962 and other time periods. When the notation “(sparse)” is used, a record could not be found but the list of certificates for that days appears to be incomplete. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, more than 75% of the data indicates a place of death incorrectly as “Humphreys County”.

        The database was updated in November 2010 with records through 2009. Additionally, most of the missing records are now in the database, and the Humphreys County problem also appears to have been corrected. Some records in 1962-1963 seem to have some unusual counties of residence and may be incorrect in that regard but otherwise seem reasonable. Death certificates listed as “not found” without a 2010 date have not yet been searched in the new version.
        Note: Original certificates should be obtained
