Early Travis County Births

Early Travis County Births, 1873-1878

Compiled by Alice Duggan Gracy, Jane Sumner, Emma Gene Seale Gentry
Extracted by Kay Dunlap Boyd

The act to provide for the Registration of Births was implemented May 3, 1873 by the legislature and repealed August 21, 1876. It stated, “that it shall hereafter be the duty of the clerks of the District Court of this State to make and keep in their offices a register of all persons born in their respective counties.” These record books were found in 25 counties, Travis being one of those. As a bonus a family would often record the birth dates of their previous children at the same time. The color of the parents was not recorded, as it was not consistently noted. Most of the maiden names came from separate research and not from the birth registrations.
