How to Obtain Texas Death Certificates

The counties and the towns were maintaining the records of the vital events (births, deaths and marriages) taking place within their areas form since early days but that data collection system was not up to the mark and this is the reason why the system of registering the vital events with the town office failed to a certain extent. Some counties and cities did record births and deaths prior to that time but it was completely on their own and it had no intention or personal interest by the state as the state was not inclined towards the statewide registration and collection of the facts and figures. The Texas state actually began official statewide vital records registration in 1903, with some earlier fragmented records also made available to them by some specific town offices. However, master indexes of the vital events took place within the state are only available for those recorded after 1903. The prior records, before the statewide registrations are sporadic and fragmented and there is no evidence of them to be authentic. In the same year, when the state of Texas made registration of the vital events official, they introduced the Department of Health, Bureau of Vital Statistics which was made responsible for maintaining data of each and every vital event took place after the year 1903.

Death records or death certificates (MCCD), Are a substantial part of the legal process. This significant information is vital to state and local government official. The state death record database contains information about a person's death, location, date, time, residence. Sometimes the names of the mother and father, and Even the physician who declares vital statistics and the cause of a person's death. Death records have long been used to help with ancestry, research. They are considered to be "primary source" records, because the information is recorded by an eye witness, at the time the death takes place.
