They simply fill out and mail in your Texas vital records application form to the state for you (something you can do yourself) or even more crazy they fill out the Texas birth certificate application form for you with the information you provide them.

Then they mail the completed application back to you so you have to mail the application form into Texas Vital Records yourself. After all of that it will still take Texas Vital Records the standard three to twelve months or longer to research, process, issue, and mail your Texas birth or death records back to you.
