County Clerk

As the County Clerk's Office moves forward with a new program for filing/recording and services for birth, death, marriage license, etc. we will make changes to this page.  County Government Records Search will be deleted, and a new Search will be added as well as other options; one of the options that will soon be provided is Fraud Guard. Please continue to watch for these changes on the County Clerk's page.  We are excited to implement these new changes to help better serve the public.

The majority of these records are permanent; therefore, making the Clerk's Office a vault for historical documents dating back to 1881. Various records are 'closed records', meaning they are not for public viewing, and it is our responsibility to protect these records for you and your heirs.

The Clerk also serves as the clerk of various courts which include county court for:

  • Civil
  • Commissioners' Court

Although the law governs what the Clerk's Office can and cannot do, it is our goal to serve all those who utilize this office to the best of our ability.

Discriminatory Provisions in Real Property Records -  SB 30


The County Clerk and Staff will not conduct searches that are not authorized by statue. The record search authorized by statue is Federal Tax Liens, Texas Property Code 14.004(d). The Error & Omissions Insurance of the County Clerk only covers actions of the County Clerk and Staff, which are statutorily required duties. Therefore, it is in the best interest of the County, as well as the Clerk individually, to refrain from performing any action (including records searches) which is not legally required.
