Welcome! My name is Sharon R. Becker. I'm Cerro Gordo County's coordinator. I enjoy photography particularly when visiting Cerro Gordo County.

I hope you enjoy exploring Cerro Gordo County's site.
Come back as often as you can since new material and items are added on a regular basis.

If you have items to submit or wish to contact me, please do so at:
Sharon R. Becker
If you should find a link that doesn't work for you, or you wish to report any edits that need to be done, please let me know.
Be sure to note Cerro Gordo County in the subject line. Thank you!!
NOTE: I do not live in the county and am not able to conduct personal genealogical research, unfortunately, but I will try to answer any questions you may have.
Please refer to "Cerro Gordo County Resources" links, located near the bottom of this web page, for off-site links that may be of assistance with your research.

Tragically, we lost Sally A. Youngquist, former coordinator of IAGenWeb Cerro Gordo County.
Sally's dedicated and devoted work is greatly appreciated. She will be sorely missed.

Many families crossed county borders several times before settling in one county.
Often the closest Court House was across the county line instead of traveling to Mason City.
