These Records appear in Book #1 of the Yoakum County Birth Records at the

Yoakum County Courthouse, Plains, Texas.   The first birth recorded in the county was on May 17, 1918.

* An Asterisk denotes a birth which took place in Terry County of Yoakum County parents.


Names are shown as they appear on the birth record.    Sometimes a parent’s name which appears more than once, will have a different spelling.   We have not attempted to correct that type of spelling but will be glad to hear from family members who have knowledge of what is accurate.    Address such correspondence to the Yoakum Co Genealogical Webpage coordinator (see home page) and a correction can then be made on our webpage.

 Note: This will not correct the name on the courthouse birth records.   

For information on how an official correction can be made, contact the Yoakum County Clerk .


 Many official corrections are found in these birth records at theYoakum Co. Courthouse.    If a birth record had an official correction on it, the corrected information is what we recorded here .
