New and Updated Texas Collections at FamilySearch

I just realized earlier today that family search had updated the following collections,

  • Texas, County Tax Rolls, 1846-1910 - Selective index to tax rolls for 231 of 254 Texas counties. The years indexed include the first year for each county included prior to 1845, as well as 1845, 1855, 1865, 1875, 1885, 1890, 1895, and 1905. The index for this collection is 13% complete. Additional records will be added as they are completed.
  • Texas, Deaths, 1977-1986 - Images of Texas statewide death certificates, including delayed certificates, from the Texas Department of State Health Services in Austin. Additional certificates will be added to the collection as they become available.

They also added these two new collections,

  • Texas, Divorce Index, 1968-2010 - This collection contains indexes of Divorce Decrees and Annulments to Marriage submitted to district courts throughout the state of Texas. The indexes were prepared by the Vital Statistics Unit of the Department of State Health Services and have been published on the Department’s website.
  • Texas, Marriages, 1966-2010 – This collection contains indexes of marriage license applications from all counties in the state of Texas. The indexes were prepared by the Vital Statistics Unit of the Department of State Health Services and have been published on the Department’s website.
If you have not checked these collections out I highly recommend that you do. They are so cool and provide a wealth of information.
