Active Directory: Who Created?

Hi Experts!

     I have some specialized user accounts in Active Directory that were created (some a couple of years ago) and I'd like to find out who it was that created them.  What is the best way to approach this?  Can someone recommend a script, ADFind, DSQuery or LDAP query or some other method that might mine this bit of information for me?  Thanks for your help!

In ADUC turn on Advanced features (view -> Advanced features), then on the
security tab of an object click on Advanced and see who the owner is.

The only way to tell is if you go back through the audit logs if you have them. Take a look at this link

the owner may give you an idea, but if the user who created it was in the domain admins group for instatnce the owner would be Domain Admin. If you do not have the logs then I would see if that is helpful as indyfish pointed out
