Texas Land Records, A Great South Texas Genealogy Resource

Land Records can be a great resource for anyone doing genealogy research. I recently found this awesome resource when it comes to Texas Land information. If you have not heard about this resource you are in for a treat.

On the following website you can expect to find:

  • Texas Land Titles
  • Deeds
  • Affidavits of heirship

and much more.

This resource is the Texas Land Records Real Property Records Search. You can find it online at www.texaslandrecords.com. It contains a lot of counties but for some of them you have to pay in order to be able to search or view images.

All of the above websites let you browse their index for free but some you will need to pay in order to get copies of the images. Make sure and check out your own county since it might be free to download images for it.

There are two requirements for most counties, to signup but it is free to do so, and also install a TIFF reader.

After playing for a few days with this website, I am still amazed at the wealth of genealogical information I found and not to mention downloadable copies of original court documents.

Give it a try, once again the website is www.texaslandrecords.com.
