thanks Dale from Ar-sharp list-this was to long to include in my one email of links so am forwarding for others to use.
Thank all of you for coming to my rescue :)
Here's the site with all the Texas records:
Kind of funny RootsWeb yanked them, but they're still on a RootsWeb site. Yes, it says cemetery records, but when you enter the county (or "all counties") you can enter the surname(s) plus any other keywords such as first name(s), year, "births," "deaths," "marriages," "divorces," "obits," or "cemetery."
Here are some sites I like to explore when filling in dates, etc. on the more contemporary generations in my tree or when just being nosy! All of these will provide more detailed information for a fee (usually a hefty fee), but the searches are free and can provide a wealth of information. Often you have to combine the information from two or three different ones to get all the puzzle pieces, but it doesn't take long to learn the strengths and weaknesses of each. This information comes from public records and includes data on deceased individuals, too.
1. USSearch http://www.ussearch.com
Often includes middle names and women's maiden names. Don't worry about knowing the right age for the person(s) on this one. Put in anything over 20 and it'll be happy.
2. InteliUS http://find.intelius.com
What I really like about this one is that the search results often group everyone in the same household together (if the Mrs. and adult children have done anything to generate a public record). Check out the advanced search option, and if you're nosing around in Kentucky or Texas, they have marriage and divorce records for those states, too.
3. KnowX http://www.knowx.com
This one includes marriage and divorce records for Florida, Nevada, Texas, and the SSDI (although RootsWeb's version is better).
4. PeopleData http://www.people-data.com
Results list often gives month and year of birth, not just age.
5. Public Record Finder http://www.publicrecordfinder.com
More state-level databases. You can get a free guest pass to search many databases including the CA birth index. Unless you pay for a "Premium Membership" you can't search by first name which is okay unless you're looking for a record for someone with a common last name. You'll still get all the results, but you have to go through the whole result list from A to Z.
6. Search Systems http://www.searchsystems.net
Similar to #5. Find out if your doctor has been disciplined by the medical board!
7. AnyBirthday.com http://anybirthday.com
Birthdates only. Type in a full or partial first name and last name. Narrow it down with a full or partial zip code if desired. (Use with #8 if needed.)
8. USPS Zip Code Finder http://www.usps.com/zip4/citytown_zip.htm
Look up zip code for any location. Also has reverse locator which is useful with #7.
9. Area Code Maps http://www.nanpa.com/number_resource_info/area_code_maps.html
Good detailed area code maps for every state. Even shows the ones about to be added.
10. MapQuest http://www.mapquest.com
Good street level maps with actual satellite shots. See what your house looks like from orbit!
