What is in This Collection?Edit

The collection consists of records from Concho County, Texas, including deeds, deeds of trust, Probate Court minutes, and Probate Court case files. This collection is being published as images become available. The records cover the years 1849 to 2008.

Counties began recording vital records, court records, and land transactions soon after they were formed. The records were used to establish legal rights and to help track the population for health and taxation purposes. The records are generally well preserved and the information is fairly reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant. Some transcription errors may have occurred.
