Help - Reference

Unfortunately, the Harris County Public Library does not have the Houston Chronicle or the Houston Press on microfilm and we are therefore unable to provide obituaries.  Our neighboring system, the Houston Public Library does have both of these newspapers on microfilm. Like Harris County Public Library, they have an email reference service.

The Harris County Public Library has basic information on beginning genealogy research including two genealogy databases. For more in depth information or help, please contact the Clayton Library – Center for Genealogical Research, a branch of the Houston Public Library.
