Birth and Death Records from the ECTOR County
Courthouse are permanently sealed and are not available to be viewed
by the public.
However they are available on microfilm for years that are open records.
The records from these indexes were obtained from the Texas State Records
The Bureau of Vital Statistics recognizes that there may be missing data, misreported data, or data entry errors. Users of the indexes may discover an error such as a misspelling of a name or an incorrect date.
The Bureau of Vital Statistics indexes are static and cannot be altered. However, if you are concerned that the original certificate is in error, you may file an amendment to the certificate with the correct information.
IF THE BIRTH RECORD SAYS "DO NOT ISSUE" IN THE FATHER'S NAME FIELD
In the past, when a person died, the father's name field on the electronic birth record was changed to "DO NOT ISSUE". This was a method that was established as a flag to BVS personnel that they should not issue a certified copy of this birth certificate to anyone claiming to be the deceased.
If you wish to obtain the father's information, follow the procedures found in How to obtain certified copies.
