Research & Artifacts

Forum for sharing information and ideas about artifact research and preserving petroleum history.

Thanks to its links to research sources and updated editorial content, this American Oil & Gas Historical Society (AOGHS) website educates thousands of people about U.S. petroleum history. There are many oil and gas industry stories to share. Relating to inquiries, The historical society has established an AOGHS membership comment post to exchange information and offer suggestions.

When contacted about oil and gas related family heirlooms, the society has helped locate suitable museum collections for preserving these unique histories (see Oil Families for more information about adding family petroleum heritage to collections and contacting museum curators).

Helpful financial research links and a popular Q&A forum about obsolete U.S. petroleum company stock certificates: Old Oil & Gas Stock Certificates and Is my Old Oil Stock worth Anything?
