I found this awesome resource when it comes to Texas Land information. If you have not heard about this great resource you are in for a treat.
On the following website you can expect to find:
- Texas Land Titles
- 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.
Luckily for me Hidalgo County is free to search and view images. Once you find a record you can even download it to your computer.
There are two requirements for Hidalgo county is that you have to signup but it is free to do so, and also install a TIFF reader, but once you do it you won’t regret it.
After playing for a few days with it 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.
