This year I learned that I was the owner of some shares of stock that had been bought for me in 1988 through UGMA. I have managed to find out from the company the exact date of the original buy, but they have no cost basis information -- and I have been all over the net with no success.How can I find out how much the stock was bought for back in 1988? I have been through quite a few newspaper archives online, most of whom don't go back that far, and those that do, don't have stock quotes.And to make matters worse, the stock name has changed multiple times. The stock that I recently sold was Medtronics, before that it was called Electromedics, but I can't seem to even find out what it was originally called (and investor relations is of no help).Does anyone out there have any suggestions? I'm on jury duty and can't get to the public library when it's open -- and even if I could, it's a dinky little place -- I doubt that they have records that old or know how to use microfilm.HELP!
