NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee State Library and Archives says it is providing people with older marriage, divorce and death records that they could need to get a Real ID.

Library and archives officials say they are helping provide records prior to 1970 and birth records prior to 1920 that could be essential to prove name changes over the years.

Those in need of the records can visit or call the library and archives. People in need of birth records from 1920 to present, or marriage, divorce and death records from 1970 to present, should instead contact the Tennessee Office of Vital Records.
