It’s day seven of our ‘15 minutes with 15 collections ’ countdown! Today, we’ve made our Texas Birth Index, 1903-1997 , completely FREE for everyone to use. It’ll stay that way until October 15th.

Texas is the second largest American state by both area and population. Our index reveals over 15 million births across almost a century of history. For each child, you can discover their full name, sex and where and when they were born – while some entries also provide both parents’ names.

If you have more information about the people in our records, or you believe you’ve found a mistake, you can add your own updates to our transcriptions. View the original record and click ‘View All’ in the top-left corner. You’ll see the transcribed details at the bottom – find the line for your ancestor, then click ‘Add Update’. Our search engine will be able to see anything you add, so other members can benefit from your knowledge.

Come back tomorrow for free access to our Births from the Swedish Death Index, 1947-2006.

See all our free record collections this month.
