Welcome to Butler County Roots, the website of the Butler County Genealogical Society of Butler County, Pennsylvania.

The Butler County Genealogical Society is a group of volunteers dedicated to the collection and preservation of information about its families, past and present, of Butler County and to help its families obtain the information they need to document their family heritage. Our membership is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy.


Picnic will be at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 143 Church St., Prospect. There isn’t an outdoor shelter, but we have full use of the hall in the basement.  The “picnic” will begin at 6:00 PM, but the facility will be opened around 5:30 for those setting up.  Participants should bring a casserole, salad, or dessert to share and a place setting.  We will provide chicken, drinks, ice, and some back-up paper products.  The church has further rolled out the red carpet by providing us with a cookie tray.

After dinner, we will have a talk by the Guenthers, long time members of the church, regarding the history of the church, followed by our traditional cemetery game.  Since we will eat inside, there will be no cancellation for inclement weather.
