So there was a story on msnbc about how unclaimed money gets sent to the state and each of the 50 states maintains a database of who money is owed to. They also have a link to each of the state websites in the story.
Anyway, I'm home sick today and have nothing better to do so I searched for my name and, not finding anything, searched for my parents too. And what do you know, they're in there! Yeah, it's probably worth very little but how cool to be finding your own forgotten treasure? I'm curious to know what they "lost and found".
