I received a call today from an energy company in Louisiana that states they have been attempting to get a hold of me for months to renew a lease agreement on some land in which they are wanting to search for natural gas on. This is the first I have ever heard of this. I have apparently inherited this from my father who passed away fifteen years ago and whom I never met.
I have been informed that there are other pieces of land which I have apparently owned for the past fifteen years, another mineral rights lease, some parking lots, etc. I have searched the unclaimed properties site for Louisiana but have found nothing on any of this.
The problem I'm having is that I have never dealt in such things before. My mother passed away about six months ago, I do not know my fathers birth place, exact date of death, ss#, or any other useful information. All I have is his name.
I am in totally unexplored territory here and could use any advise I can get.
