Exhibit: Ofrendas del Día de los Muertos – Day of the Dead Altars

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 through Saturday, November 3, 2018

For Family History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month we share with you a holiday 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 spirits of the deceased.  The Hispanic Genealogical Society of Houston has created ofrendas that can be viewed from September 18th through November 3rd
