Acts of Tennessee

Since its territorial days, the Tennessee state legislature has passed acts affecting the lives of individual citizens. The acts may include such things as divorces, legitimizing children, compensation for government service,and road and ferry authorization. These records make excellent substitutes for counties with heavy record loss.

TSLA has a online index to names found in the acts for the years 1796-1850. Copies of acts can be ordered through their website.

In 1940, the W.P.A. published a Check List of Acts and Codes of the State of Tennessee, 1792-1939. This survey is available at the Family History Library: FHL US/CAN Book 976.8 A1 no. 12.
