  • "An Act to provide for the registration of Births" was passed with the Texas Constitution of 1869. It was implemented on May 3, 1873. These volumes abstract the surviving registers of the births recorded under this act. The authors visited the 148 counties that were in existance at the time of the recordkeeping. Fifty-two counties were found to still have birth records from this time period. Forty-three of these counties were abstracted for the present work
  • Counties abstracted are: v. 1. Austin, Bandera, Bastrop, Bell, Bexar, Brazos, Burnet, Caldwell, Colorado, Comal, Comanche, DeWitt, Fayette, Gillespie, Grimes, Hays, Kendall, Lavaca, Lee, Medina, Menard, Nacogdoches, San Saba, Travis, Victoria -- v. 2.
