Question
My dad bought stocks in Bromo-Cedin (Martimes) LTD and Proto Explorations & Holdings INC. in 1966,1967 and 1972.  My dad has passed away.  How do I know if these stocks are still good and how do I claim them if they are?

Answer
Gloria, from the information I have available:

I have no information on Bromo-Cedin. If there is a transfer agent listed on the certificate, you should try to contact them first. If not, you can try the Province of Incorporation and see what information they have available. Or, contact a broker and ask them to perform a detailed search for you.

Proto changed its name several times before it became Standard-Modern Technologies, Standard was placed into receivership, and shareholders received nothing. No current value.
