Paradise Genealogical Society, Exhibitor at Family History Day

Please welcome the Paradise Genealogical Society as an exhibitor at Family History Day at the California State Archives.

Nestled in the foothills of northern California, the Paradise Genealogical Society was started in 1968 by a dedicated group of volunteers. Motivated by a love of history, they collected books, newspaper articles, maps and photographs of Butte County. Through the years, our members have donated and indexed additional books, obituaries, publications, and family histories.

Our Society maintains a library unique in that it is not subsidized by church or tax funds and is not housed in a church or tax-supported public building. Members have check-out privileges and the facilities are available to the public at no charge. We are open four days a week with researchers always on hand to assist members and non-members alike.

Library patrons have much to access when they arrive:

  • More than 3,600 printed volumes
  • Over 480 periodical titles of genealogical interest
  • Microfilm/fiche records
  • Computerized files and resources
  • The Florence Styles Collection of files and written records of California, particularly Butte County, from this noted historian.
Having just completed a successful four-day exhibition at the Butte County Fair in Gridley, we realized how excited people are about genealogy. We look forward to being at Family History Day, talking to you about your ancestors and describing how we can be of assistance.
