I appreciate the opportunity to help!

That may prove to be a bit difficult to find out unless you are the executor/beneficiary of the stocks. If the stocks were held at a broker, then it's easier. If its stock certificates in different companies, then each company would have to be contacted and dealt with separately. Being executor, you have the control over the estate and can obtain that info once you verify that info and provide a death certificate to them. If there is no executor and other family, then you could have a probate issue and have an executor named. Make some phone calls and have the death certificate ready. Just see if you can get the info and ask their procedure on handling beneficiaries, etc.
