Welcome to the American Oil & Gas Historical Society website. AOGHS.org includes links to energy education resources, especially the work of community museums – and preserves little-known stories of petroleum history.

The society does not have resources to investigate requests for information about stock certificates and company histories. But other website visitors may have information. To share research experience, AOGHS.org visitors are encouraged to post a question (with date and details about the certificate) on the Stock Certificate Q&A forum page.

paypal_Bruce-WellsFor contributions to adding new articles, content and links, you can securely donate online using your PayPal account.

Expanding the AOGHS.ORG website and energy education mission depend on individual donations. Please print this form and mail it with a check to support energy education mission.

Please Note:  AOGHS does not have staff or funding to respond to all requests for research (many resources, including links to directories of obsolete securities, can be found in Old Oil & Gas Stock Certificates). If you want help researching an old oil stock certificate, first post your question on the website’s Stock Certificate Q&A forum page.
