The newspapers in this archive date from 1846 to present. They were compiled while researching for articles in the newsletter section of this site. They are mostly Oroville and Chico newspapers as well as from Red Bluff, San Francisco, Sacramento and Marysville papers.
The archives are updated several times a year as well as the Index. Check the date “updated” on the Index for the last date this archive was updated.
Helpful Hint: The PDF Index below can be viewed in your computer browser and searched by keyword without downloading the file by using Control F on your keyboard when the file is open. This function is very helpful with these large files in finding a specific person, subject, place, etc. The Control F Function does not work on photographs or the text embedded in the photo.
Helpful Hint: Check the index for an overview of Newspaper Articles and then look up the article you are interested in by year and scroll through the dates! Births, Deaths and Marriages newspaper articles are in separate sections with their own index.
