Last month I posted that I’d consolidated the death records available on the Blount County TNGenWeb site into one database.
Now, I’ve just learned that the Shelby County Register of Deeds has a statewide death index that covers 1949-2005. This is great! At this point, I’m not sure how comprehensive it is, but you should definitely take a look! Some benefits of also searching there include a direct link to a form to request the records of the individual.
