The Central Registry has two fully searchable databases, an Information Database and an Object Database:
This section allows a search of ownership history and information source. Ownership can be searched by current and previous locations, current and previous owners, and date of ownership. The owner could be an individual, an institution or an auction house. If the first name of an owner is known, enter the first name as well. If the owner is a company, enter the full name in the Name field (eg:Thomas Agnew & Sons). If you know the exact date, enter it in the first date box only. If you know the approximate date, enter a date range in both date boxes. In the Source box, enter the name of the data source (eg: OFP, OFP Project).
