Researching through Death

Death is the Only thing in life that is inevitable. 

By remembering the deceased, our loved ones, and our ancestors we remember who we are.  Be it through a genealogical record index, a poem, or a traditional ritual, information can aid us in researching, remembering, celebrating, or coping with loss.

The Texana/Genealogy Department is a Reference Only Collection. The materials are not allowed to leave the department, however, copies of some of the books are available for check out in the circulating collection.

This guide is designed to introduce you to books, databases, web sites, and information on microfilm related to death.
