The Kaufman County Clerk's office is charged with the important duty of recording and preserving a variety of county records, many of which date back as far as the 1860s. Vital records like birth and death certificates and marriage licenses are included, as well as land records, maps, real and personal property records, and military discharge records. Death certificates older than 25 years are considered public record, but for any less than 25 years old, the state deems them private.
