Back in 2010 received an oil and gas lease for property in webster parish. They drilled a p and a d it. I didn't know I owned these mineral rights until then. There is a producing cv well on property with my greatgrandfathers last name.it has been producing since the 70`s. I dont receive any royalties from it. How do I go about researching this?
To have ownership you need a document granting ownership recorded in the courthouse. Succession proceedings would produce a Judgment Of Possession that would transfer ownership from your deceased grandfather into his heirs. Did your grandfather leave a will? What year did he die?
