I am currently trying to research several old stock certificates for my mother. They are in her late husbands name and they date back as far as 1951. Five are Canadian Mining Companies, one is a Pharmaceutical Co. in Missouri. I have spoken with the Co. in Mo. and am awaiting fax info on co. I am having trouble finding the 5 Mining co.'s. Does anybody have any advice as to how I can locate the 5 mining co.'s? Also, when I talk with the Pharmaceutical company, how do I know if they are beine truthful about their situation? Is there anyplace on the net where I can get financial info on a company?
Thanks in advance
