The Kerr Regional History Center
and Archives has a collection of obituary records
compiled by Gloria Dozier of the Kerrville Genealogical Society.
In addition to those obituary records, there are microfilms of
early Kerr County newspapers.
The obituaries in
these newspapers have been indexed by Mrs. Dozier. Contact the Kerr Regional History Center &
Archives at 425 Water Street in Kerrville or write to them at
their mailing address: 425 Water Street, Kerrville, Texas 78028.
Be sure to give the full name of the deceased and the
(or approximate date) of death. Enclose your name
and contact information (phone number, e-mail address or snail mail
address). You may also call the History Center during
its hours of operation at (830) 258-1278. The hours are
Saturday from 10 AM
to 4 PM when volunteers from the Kerrville Genealogical
Society are there to help those who are doing family history
Leave your name and phone number along with
the name you seek in the obituary records. A Volunteer will do a search to see if
there is an obituary for that name. Researchers will then get a call-back,
e-mail or mailing from the staff of the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial
Library to report on the
charges for copying and mailing the obituary.
