January 2013 we began making available the purchase of a birth certificate to anyone born in the State of Texas; simultaneously our newly designed Marriage License became available. This 4-color license displays a beautiful burgundy rose representing our "Rose City" and is recognized as one of the most attractive Marriage License in the State. Browse to Vital Statistics -> Marriages web page to view the new license.
