Record Search at FamilySearch Labs has recently added a collection of Texas death records covering 1890-1976. I’ve tried this and it’s quite a good collection in terms of content and useability. Like all the indexed collections at Record Search, name variations are automatically retrieved in search results. I like the fact that there is a “Copy to Clipboard” link on the record details page, which in one click copies the details–and only the details–to the clipboard. On Ancestry.com, by comparison, you have to go to “View Printer-friendly” and then select and copy the details.
There is a link to a PDF version of the actual death certificate; however, that link seems not yet functional.
All things considered, this addition to Record Search is a solid “A” in my gradebook.
