Dear Ms. Magallanes,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Federal Government does not ordinarily create or maintain birth, death, marriage or divorce records. Such records are made and kept by State and local governments rather than the National Archives.
If births in Texas were recorded before 1903, they were recorded in the county clerk's office in the county of birth, so you will want to check there for any records. A list of County Clerk addresses is on the County and District Clerks’ Association of Texas website .Some birth records may be on microfilm. In addition to contacting the County Clerk, you may wish to also review the listing of County Records on Microfilm posted on our website. Check to see if the county where the birth occurred is listed and the types of records which have been filmed.
For early California birth records, please contact the California State Archives. We also suggest reviewing the FamilySearch wiki - How to Find Texas Birth Records and How to Find California Birth Records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
