Texas Marriage Records

Texas marriage records
Why are Texas records so much more accessible than those of other states?

I have many ancestors and relatives who have lived in Texas, but I occasionally need to access birth, marriage, death records from other states, and many of them are not accessible through Ancestry.com or any other site.

Hmmm, I don’t know — it sounds unlikely that Texas has determined its policy on public records access entirely as a way to make money off of one specific website.

More likely, they just want to have a high level of customer service.

Texas Criminal Public Record

Why is it so hard to find PUBLIC access records?

Specifically, in California, Texas and Florida pertaining to criminal records from the court systems. Do these states not provide this info online? Why not? I need this info to help others provide info for employment but can’t find it online like most states provide. It just saves a lot of time and aggravation.

Texas and Florida do not provide criminal records online. I am sure it has something to do with privacy, etc. I know nothing about California.

Texas free vital records search
how can i find out if I am divorced in El Paso, Texas?

are there free vital record searches

Did you get sleep divorced? It was in the news recently… Or are you trying to figure out if someone else is divorced? I’m not sure about Texas, but I know in Minnesota we can go into State offices and they have terminals set up that you can use to look up public records for free. All you do is enter in as much information about the person in question and their public record pops up.
