This database is an index to approximately 2.9 million divorces that were filed in Texas from 1968-2011. Information that may be found in this database includes file number, husband's full name, husband's age, wife's given and middle names, wife's age, number of children under the age of 18, marriage date, divorce date, and divorce county. Divorce records have been maintained statewide by the Bureau of Vital Statistics since January 1968, but certified copies are not available from this facility. Divorce records are maintained under the jurisdiction of the clerk of the respective district court. During the first years of the Republic of Texas, divorces were granted by special acts of Congress, but in 1841 district courts took over this responsibility, with some exceptions. After statehood, district courts had full jurisdiction over divorces. Taken from Wendy Bebout Elliot, "Texas," Red Book, ed. Alice Eichholz (Provo, Utah: Ancestry, 2004).

It is important that you use the information found in this database to locate your relative in the original records that this index references. Usually more information is available in the records themselves than is found in an index. For example, divorce records may list marriage information, birth information, or the cause for divorce in addition to the information provided in this index.

Marriage, divorce, and annulment records file after 6 June 1927 are available at the Office of Vital Statistics. For records prior to that date, query the clerk of courts in the county where the license or decree was issued. Numerous county marriage records began as early as the 1820s. Copies of marriage license applications are available only from the clerk of courts in the county courthouse. Standard request forms for copies of state held records are necessary and available as indicated above.

This database contains abstracts of divorce records for the state of Ohio. Beginning in 1962 and extending to 2007, this collection has information regarding the parties involved, and can provide information needed to request copies of divorce decrees, which are available through individual county courts in Ohio. The Ohio Office of Vital Statistics does not issue the divorce decrees, these records are abstracts that provide limited information used for filing purposes. While this collection contains a wide range of years, unfortunately, 1964, 1965, 1966 and 1972 are missing, as abstracts for these years are not available from the Ohio Office of Vital Statistics. As this is a more recent collection, this index potentially provides an opportunity to find more recent family history of relatives who may still be living. The abstracts contain husband’s name, wife’s name, birth years, year of divorce, county of residence, number of minor children, marriage duration, grounds for divorce, and to whom the decree was granted.
