ABOUT THE FORT BEND COUNTY LIBRARIES OBITUARY DATABASE
The Fort Bend County Libraries Obituary Database is a searchable, online database designed to help residents of Fort Bend County, and those with ties to the area, to conduct genealogical research, either from the library or from home.
For many years, the Genealogy department’s volunteers and staff have been compiling a FBC Burial Records Database. In 1997, this burial information was published as a five-volume set entitled Registry of Cemeteries in Fort Bend County, Texas. A supplement was published in 2004, and another supplement is currently being compiled. The resource is housed in the Genealogy department at George Memorial Library.

Information contained in the burial records includes name, birth and death dates, cemetery of burial, and notes. In addition, a growing number of records contain .jpg images of obituaries that were published in the Fort Bend Herald from August 1, 2007, to the present. Obituaries dating before August 1, 2007, will be progressively added each month. The database contains thousands of records and will continue to grow as we add new records and obituaries from our in-house file. Alternate criteria for inclusion are listed below:
• Selected obituaries that were published in the Houston Chronicle, donated by volunteers.
• Obituaries of residents of Fort Bend County
• Obituaries of past long-time residents of Fort Bend County.
From this database, you can search by name, birth date or death date.
