Presidio County was created from Bexar County on 3 January, 1850, although county operations did not begin until 1875. Marriage and probate records are available from 1875; deeds and district court minutes are available from 1876. None of these records have been microfilmed. Records prior to 1875 may be found in the counties which contained this area of western Texas:
