What I also find quite helpful are the public,
on-line Texas birth/death/marriage/divorce
records. These are located on-line as
Birth Records from 1929 - 1949:
Birth Records from 1950 - 1996:
Death Records from 1966 - 1998:
Marriage Records from 1966 - 1998:
Divorce Records from 1966 - 1998:
These are not census records, but they are
very very useful.
Census records are not generally on-line.
You have to go to a library which has the
U.S. census records on microfilm... OR...
you can buy some of these records from
private companies (such as Family Tree Maker,
and others) on CD-ROM. The only drawback is
that you usually have to also own a copy of
their genealogy programmes for the computer
in order to read these CD-ROMs.
I do my census work from one fo the LDS
(Mormon) Family History Centers (libraries).
It takes a little while to learn how to do this, but once you do, it's easy.
