Ofrendas del Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead Altars
For Family History month and Hispanic Heritage month, we share with you a holiday specifically for remembering and honoring deceased family members and loved ones - Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Essential to this holiday is the creation of ofrendas, or altars, that welcome the deceased. The Hispanic Genealogical Society of Houston and Clayton Library staff have created ofrendas for their loved ones that can be viewed at Clayton Library from October 4th through November 4th.
