Re: county records?

I've been equally frustrated about birth records.Unless you find a family bible or baptismal records, you're out of luck.
There is a lot more variation on marriage records and death/probate records (although pre-1900 death records usually just contain a line with the date of death and name of the deceased).
A good quick reference is the State Library Website: http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/genfirst.html#vitalhttp://www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/genfirst.html#vital
They have a detailed index of records available on Microfilm here (categorized by county): http://www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/local/index.htmlhttp://www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/local/index.html
This can help you see at a glance whether the type of information you want is even available.
