Texas History

Texas Land Records

Texas Military Records

Texas Adjutant General Service Records 1836-1935
The Service Records series combines both official service record files from the Adjutant General’s Office and alphabetical files created by other agencies that contain records related to an individual’s service in a military unit. The information contained in an individual’s file varies considerably. Some files contain only small strips of paper with one or two brief sentences while others contain several lengthy, detailed records. Information can include measurements of uniforms, payments for mustering-in, warrants of authority, individual equipment records, general orders, oaths of allegiance, pay vouchers, powers of attorney, and discharge verifications. The names listed in the index do not represent all people who served in the various units, only those represented in the records described above. If an individual is not found in the index, it should not be assumed that they did not serve. They are simply not represented in this particular records series.

Texas Forts

Revolutionary War Records

Republic of Texas War Records

  • Republic Claims
    The Republic Claims series of Comptroller’s records includes claims for payment, reimbursement, or restitution submitted by citizens to the Republic of Texas government from 1835 through 1846. It also includes records relating to Republic pensions and claims against the Republic submitted as public debt claims after 1846. The files include supporting documents such as vouchers, financial accounts, military records, receipts, notes, or letters. The records comprise four groups of payments made for services rendered during the period 1835-1846: Audited Claims, Republic Pensions, Public Debt Claims, and Unpaid Claims.
  • Republic of Texas Passports
    The Republic of Texas passports collection contains 55 documents. These include requests for passports, orders to issue passports, and one proclamation granting entrance into the Republic. Some relate to the freedom of movement within the Republic of Texas, while others request access to Mexico, the United States and Europe. Most documents were created between 1836 and 1845, although two are from the 1850s. The majority are written in English and some in Spanish. The collection can be useful for placing individuals in the Republic of Texas around the time the passport was requested or granted.

Texas Obituaries

  • Texas Obituary Project
    The goal of the database is to include all obituaries that have appeared in the publication This Week in Texas, focusing especially on the “AIDS years” of 1982 through 2000, but beginning in 1975. And I estimate progress to be about 99% complete. Significant data from other publications, like the Montrose Voice, Houston Voice, Dallas Voice, etc, are also included, and more will be added as available.
  • Colorado County Obituaries
