Do you have the actual certificates, and are they made out in your name? If so, check the date on the certificates, which will determine the cost basis if you sell them.
First though, you need to make a copy of the certificate — front and back — and send the COPY to the transfer agent. Here is a link that will get you to the transfer agent.
