Application for Certified Copy of Birth Death Marriage in PDF form


The County Clerk in Midland County is the local registrar who records all death certificates. In 1987 the legislature closed death records to public inspection for 25 years from date of death. Only a qualified applicant may get a copy of a death certificate. A qualified applicant is a member of his or her immediate family by blood excluding grandchildren unless they are made executors in the will  or a legal representative (the person's attorney). The applicant for a death certificate must provide identification such as a driver's license or some type of government issued photo identification.    As of 9/1/2015 the Texas Health and Safety Code Section 191.0031 states the State registrar or a local registrar may not issue a certified copy of a record under this chapter to a person who has applied for the record by mail unless the person has provided notarized proof of indentity in accordance with rules adopted by the executive commissioner of the Health and Human Services Commission.
