In Reply to: Mrs. Nancy Anthony - North Carolina to Tennessee by Jeannette Scott of 41075

I’m not related to any member of this family.

Facts you should know about the early census records –

All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated                     
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]
1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++

TN Vital Records -
The Vital Statistics Law, established by Chapter 30, Public Acts of 1913, was passed and became effective January 1, 1914, for statewide registration of birth & death registration.

The Tennessee Office of Vital Records retains birth records from 1914. (NOTE: Beginning in 2014, birth records will begin transferring to the Tennessee State Library & Archive since we retain the birth records for 100 years. Then they will transfer on a year by year schedule.) Death records are only retained by our office for 50 years. Once the death records become 50 years old they are transferred to the Library & Archive also. Presently we have death records from 1960 to the present.
Once the records are transferred to the L & A, they become true public records and anyone can access them.
Please feel free to contact me if you need further assistance.
