We bought a stock (logicon) more than 20 years ago and I recently sold it. Since purchase the stock has changed name Northrop-Grunmman), gone through splits, paid dividens, etc. I have not been able to find the original purchase confirmation, and the broker does not have records going that far back. What can I do to determine cost basis, and generally how do I deal with the gains (it was profitable) vis-a-vis taxes?

Thank you for any input
