Any advice you could offer would really help me (us) out.

I don't know just what your situation is but some places keep track of your cost basis for you in their records. Would it be possible to ask the broker for a year-end report? A lot of brokerages put out such a thing as a matter of course.

I'd go back to the broker to at least TRY to get some info. Otherwise it sounds like all the numbers would be guesses.

Just a thought.
