PAULDING – There is a gem hidden in Paulding County of which more and more family historians are becoming aware. It is the Paulding County Carnegie Library with its awesome genealogy department.

What began in 1985 with “maybe 20 books” is now a collection of over 5,000 books and documents. Notable in the department is a collection of over 30 books put together by members of the Paulding County Genealogy Society and a compilation of obituary cards nearing the 100,000 mark.

These features and more have drawn people to Paulding County from as far away as Maine and Alaska, Florida and Arizona.
