Old film stock references

So I’ve been scanning a lot of old family negatives (literally a shoebox full) lately, and just for the heck of it I’ve been trying to identify what stock the film I’m scanning is. Which has turned into quite a bit of a challenge. It’s basically anything from no markings at all, to the full commercial name, and everything in between. Here’s some sources I’m using to identify the film stock I’m dealing with:

Kodak Film Number to Film Type Cross Reference Table
The Big Film Database !
The Flat Film Archive
