Ok. So, 30 minutes later I think I have a decent answer to my own question:The SEC helpfully tells you the various ways in which to hold shares:http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/holdsec.htmOf the two ways to get the shares registered in your name the Direct Registration System seems to make the most sense so that you don't have to hold physical certificates and you avoid the fees brokerage firms charge for issuing/depositing certificates.Next step is to find a discount brokerage firm that participates in the DRS and allowes (free?) transfers.Scottrade seems to meet this criteria: "No-cost, value added services include:... Incoming / outgoing direct registration system (DRS)"http://www.scottrade.com/online-brokerage/trading-fees-commi...Hope this helps somebody else and if anybody can find a less expesive way to accomplish this, please let me know!
