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.
