TEXAS INFORMATION ON THE DEATH INDEX
Death records become open after twenty-five years. Indexes for open records years are referred to as general indexes and indexes for years which are not yet open to the public are called summary indexes.
The Summary Death Index includes the last, first, and middle name, if any, of the decedent, date of death, county of death, and sex of registrant. All indexes will be sorted in alphabetical order by surname within each year.
The General Death Index includes the last, first, and middle name, if any, of the registrant, date of death, county of death, and sex of registrant, and may also include social security number, marital status, and the spouse's name. All indexes will be sorted in alphabetical order by surname within each year. If the record falls into the open record category, a general index may be made available for public use.
