An earthquake in Obion County, Tennessee, damaged records in 1842, 39 years after the county was founded on the Obion River. The county website indicates that vital records are not available at the county level, but information about births, death, marriages, and divorces is filed with the Tennessee Vital Records Office (http://health.state.tn.us/vr/Genealogy.htm). Copies of death, marriage, and divorce records are stored for 50 years; birth records are stored for 100 years. The Tennessee State Library and Archives (http://www.tn.gov/tsla/history/county/factobion.htm) also maintains county records and other documents. To receive records directly from the Internet, inquiries should be made to VitalChek (http://www.vitalchek.com/tennessee-express-vital-records.aspx), which charges a processing fee.
