Thank you for that information although you did not answer second part of my question I am going to assume this was indeed a felony conviction. In that case, your right to vote would have been automatically restored at the completion of your sentence
. The other civil rights can only be restored with a positive recommendation to the Governor and his signature from the Board of Pardons and Paroles.
However, under Federal law a convicted felon is not eligible, under any circumstances to purchase, possess, etc. a firearm. So, even though State law may allow for the restoration of civil rights. Federal law overrides any State law that conflicts. You can see a discussion of the Federal law prohibiting firearm possession by going to: http://www.atf.gov/firearms/how-to/identify-prohibited-persons.html
As for the other civil rights, you can see a discussion of the law at: http://www.sentencingproject.org/doc/File/Collateral%20Consequences/Texas.pdf
You will want to hire a local criminal
law attorney who has a practice that includes post-conviction issues, such as restoration of civil rights, so that they can assist you in your petition to the Board.
