Note about Death Records:

  • Prior to 1853, birth records were not kept in Tazewell. Family Bibles would probably be the only source. Remember, not all births were recorded as many families lived far from the courthouse. Of those that are available, birth and death records from 1853-1896 and marriage records from 1853-1936 are available on microfilm at the The Archives Division of The Library of Virginia, 800 East Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia, 23219-1905, (804) 692-3500. The Library of Virginia will NOT make copies for you (you can visit them and make your own). In order to order birth records, you must go through the Division of Vital Records, James Madison Building, 109 Governor Street, P.O. Box 1000, Richmond, VA 23208. There you can obtain copies of  1853 through 1896 and 1912-1939 birth records.
