I have 19 years of experience and I have done these certification at starting of my career. So Is it still make sense to keep these certifications ? Technically may not be.. but does the HR or Staffing guy may give some weight to it ? thats what my question is ?
Specifically in US market.

Yeah, these certifications are so out of date that technically they could be viewed as irreverent.  
Personally, I have them on my profiles only to highlight that I've been coding (with Java) for many years.

The issue is always that recruitment is often handed out to third parties who have limited technical knowledge, so you get asked "How many years of experience..." in order to screen candidates out.  Starting to see a lot of companies now asking for technical tests before interviews.
