Corporation Card File Search

Searching for some business history? It may be a longshot, but you could try the Corporation Card File Search that's hosted by the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth's Corporations Division at http://www.sec.state.ma.us/cor/corpweb/corcard/cardinf.htm. Click on the link to "Search the Corporate Card File Database," which is still a work in progress. I tried "Texon" and got scans of four cards. The date given is the "date of organization." These are very brief entries, but might answer some merger and acquisition questions. The Corporations Division says on their website that "If you need a document that is not already a PDF on our system please email us" and they will presumably copy or scan the corporation card that applies.

Cheers,
