There is no source record....the user is created, then replicated to every DC....its all multimaster infrastructure....holding a root record sounds something along the lines of PDC days which are long gone....i have never found a way to find this

nither did I, but I`m sure it must be something....let`s imagine the following scenario:
"You have a virus that creats user accounts in your organization, on one domain controller....how can you find out which one to unplug it from the network....think that you might have 300 DCs in this organization....you can not go and browse the security logs on each one...."

well - i think I can turn on auditing for ad objects and creat a vbscript to read the security log for each DC ...but it`s a bit difficult and not handy....so i`m thinking that there should be an easier way....

The Security logs should be able to tell you where an object was created.

You may need to turn on auditing for object creation to get more details, but the act of adding a user should be logged now.
