Subject: Many Certificates couple questions Date: 6/9/2001 9:25 PM

I have over 20 old stock certificates that I have inherited. They have dates from 1917-1924, 1932, 1934, and 1952. I researched the obsoleted book at the library and none were listed, and I've spent quite a bit of time at the web sites of the states of incorporation and not found much information.
The questions I have are:
1. scriphilly.com has one for sale, The Long Horn Oil Company of Colorado 1920, does this mean that I can cross this off my research list?
2. I found a company at the State of Colorado's web site that matches one of the certificates, Blue Bird Mining & Milling Compnay Incorporated in 1967. The certificate was signed 9/1/1932 though. Does the fact that someone new registered the name mean anything?

3. Since I've taken quite a bit of time already and haven't found anything, I'm thinking about paying a research service. Does anyone have a company to recommend or to avoid?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Here is the list of companies I'm currently researching:
Texas
Petroleum Producers' Association 9/1/22
Currier-Ertel Syndicate No. 1 11/12/21
Currier-Ertel Syndicate No. 2 11/12/21
Spear Oil Company 8/27/19
Arizona
Red Rose Oil Company 1/28/32
Wyoming
The Big Bear Oil Company 9/27/17
Delaware
Catlett-Davis Oil Corporation 7/1/18
Colorado
Jumbo Properties Inc. 11/14/29
London Mountain Gold Mining Co. 12/8/34
The Silver Mountain Mining Company 5/10/20
The Nil Desperandum Mines Co. 11/23/20
The Long Horn Oil Company 5/7/20
50-50 Oil Company 10/30/24
Nevada
Normandy Productions, Inc. 1/17/52 (makers of a 3 Stooges movie)

Can you believe I still have more to go through?...
