Clay County,




Clay County Birth Records are available in the Clay County Clerk's office for the years 1908-1912.

The Tennessee State Library and Archives has microfilmed these records and provides very useful information on how to obtain birth records on their website. Click here.

For Birth Records beginning in 1914 to the present date, contact the State Department of Vital Records.

Birth dates may also be obtained by searching Bible records, cemetery records, death records, and the Social Security Death Index. To be listed in this index, it would have been necessary for a person to have had a social security number. Generally speaking, they would have had to be of adult age in the 1930's. Click here for more info and tips.

Birth records and a copy of the application a person filled out when applying for a social security number are also excellent ways of obtaining an official record of a person's PARENTS.

Lea C. Savage provided this information on Richardson and Goodpasture Births, Deaths, and Marriages, taken from entries placed in a history book.
