Howdy,
I've got another link for you and it's a gold mine.......

You can look up and actually see the original Texas death certificate thru 31 Dec 1976 at

http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#w=;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable

One word of caution, as with all ancestry com records these days, their typists screw up big time !!!

The place search is supposed to be by county but some of their ignoramuses typed in the city first -
Example, you might search Shelby, Texas, United States but if you search Center, Shelby, Texas, United States you will get listings not included in the first search.

Also, some typists entered the full name of the deceased so this website does not always match ancestry com's death index.

Often searching using less gets better results.
With creative thinking, I have been about 85% successful in finding the death certificates I want.

Kathye
