Research Assistance


NCIGS volunteers do research in response to requests sent via postal delivery or by email.  Sources for their research are the extensive NCIGS Library, Mason City and Cerro Gordo county cemeteries, the Cerro Gordo County Courthouse, and sometimes sources within the nine counties we serve.  Please complete the form and also indicate sources already searched so we will not duplicate your work.

Our current charges are $10.00 ($15 non-members) per hour research and report time, plus copy charges and postage.  Moneys received for research are used to recover our costs and add to our library resources.  We need to have $10.00 ($15 non-members) before proceeding, and any additional charges need to be paid before requested information is sent to you.  Please fill out the form with what information you already have.
