The Texas State Library and Archives

Innis Family Tree

Have you visited the Texas State Library and Archives yet? They are getting it right and I’m hopeful they will keep working at it and loading more things into their digital archives. Take a look at what’s available under genealogy.

There is an Online Public Access Catalog to see what they have in the archives, but the following links are available on the genealogy page.

Online and searchable by name:
Index to Confederate Pension Applications,
Index to Texas Adjutant General Service Records, 1836-1935,
Index to Republic Claims,
Confederate Indigent Families Lists,

In Person:
Vital Statistics Indexes,
Texas County Tax Rolls on Microfilm,
Texas City Directories,
Texas Telephone Directories,
1867 Voters Registration
Convict Record Ledgers (1849-1954),
Convict Record Ledgers Indexes (1849-1970).

Don’t forget to always look at the university libraries and pay close attention to their special collections. The Perry-Castaneda Library Map Collection at the University of Texas at Austin is terrific.

Thanks Texas! It’s nice when you can at least find out what’s available in a state.
