Starr County Texas Records on Microfilm at The University of Texas Pan American

UTPAbroncsSeveral months ago I had called the Starr County Clerk office and inquired if I could have access to their Marriage records. I was told yes and provided with location. I inquired if I could take a scanner, or camera and told that I could not. I asked if they had a copier and was advised that they would make the copy for $20.00. I asked for the prices and it was pretty much $20.00 per copy for any document in their archives. I asked if they could search for it and they said it would be $30.00. As you all know this is just a hobby for me and since I needed several images I opted for not going over since it was also 40 miles away from home.

Don’t feel bad this is not the end of the story, luckily for me, while conducting searches at the University of Texas Pan American’s Catalog I came across this title “Starr county records [microfilm]“. I promptly clicked on it and the following is what I found.

If you are into Genealogy like me, then you may already know that this is a treasure trove. Turns out the microfilms 1016452 & 1016453 contained the two marriage records that I was looking for. Guess what I went to the UTPA library and made digital images of the marriage records and all for free. Super convenient since the library is just a few miles away from my workplace.

By the way it took me more time to learn how to use the microfilm reader and computer that what it took to find the marriage records.

So if you are doing research in Starr County this is a great resource to get those needed records.

Happy hunting. If you need for me to look for a record or get you a copy of anything on these microfilms look at my services page for pricing.
