Texas Birth and Death Records

Birth Records - TX Public Records Edit

The Texas Department of State Health Services provides access to certified copies of birth records. While online verification of records is not available, you may obtain verification in writing. Fill out the application for a certified copy of a birth certificate (which can be downloaded or obtained in person). Requests can be made only by the immediate family of the person whose name is on the certificate for births occurring within the last 75 years.

Vital Statistics Office 1100 W. 49th Street Austin, Texas 78756

Death Records - TX Public Records Edit

The Texas Department of State Health Services does not publish a searchable death index online, so requests for records must be made in-person or by mail. For deaths that occurred within the last 25 years, only the immediate family is able to obtain a death certificate. Once you have obtained and completed the death certificate application, include copies of the appropriate identification and payment and send to the Texas Vital Statistics Office.

Per law states does not publish death certificates within 25 years of their occurrence. I suggest that you contact Texas Vital Resources located in Austin, if I am right off the top of my mind.
