Birth Certificates

Birth records maintained by the Clerk and the Bureau of Vital Statistics are closed to public inspection, with the exception of birth records that have reached the 75th anniversary of the date of birth as shown on the record.

However, if you are a qualified applicant, you will be able to purchase a Birth Certificate for any birth that took place in the State of Texas at the Kaufman County Clerk's office (dating from 1926 to the present) or any birth that took place in Kaufman County from 1876 to the Present.

In 2016, a Resolution was signed to consolidate all birth and death records from the City of Terrell to the Kaufman County Clerk's Office. By transferring all the records to one central location, the Clerk's office is better able to serve the citizens of Kaufman County.
