E-mail the Coordinator


In an effort to cut down on the junk and spam email, clickable web-based email icons are occasionally used on this website. Apparently they don't work properly for some people. I DO want to hear from you .... so if the clickable icons don't work on your computer & you get a message that says 'invalid email address', please click below to send an e-mail.

To email Sharyl:

I'd appreciate it if you'd include Clayton co. in the subject line or in the body of the email. Before you email me, if you have a query please consider posting to the Query Board first. I don't live near Clayton county and am unable to do any hands-on research. If I have information that may be of interest in your posted query, I'll reply.

Having said that ...... I don't want to discourage anyone from emailing me and I will always reply to your emails (usually within a week) even if all I can offer is a suggestion or guidance. If I'm going to be away from my computer for more than a week, I'll post a message on the main page and will reply to any emails when I get home.



About me:

I was born and raised in northeast Iowa, a native of Postville, Allamakee county. My roots run deep in both Allamakee & Clayton counties on both my maternal & paternal family trees. My ggg-grandfather Richard Pearson & his wife arrived in Clayton county in 1838, where he was the 1st probate judge in the region.

My first 'job' with IAGenWeb was as a transcriber for the late Roxanne Barth, who was the original coordinator for both Allamakee & Clayton counties. In the early 2000's I 'adopted' the counties and have been coordinating them ever since --- and enjoying every minute!

Although I haven't lived in Iowa for many years, I still have family near Postville. I don't get back there as often as I'd like, but maintaining the Clayton co. website keeps me informed and knowledgable about the area. It's a thrill every morning to open my email and find that someone has taken the time to post an obituary, biography, document or query on one of the message boards, or has emailed me a note.
