Can I find out where a website was hosted a couple of years ago?

This one is out of left field. I didn't even know where to post it :-)
I have a client who had an inhouse IT person that left in a kind of rush about 2 years ago and I took over the site in a shambolic state.
The client had a forum setup for its clents and that wasn't working when I took over. I had to renew the domain name and setup a new forum which is working quite well.
My question is, is it at all possible to get a clue to where the original site was hosted as they want to, if at all possible, get back the user list from the old forum as it was quite substantial. We are hoping (with little expectaion) that if we could find it, they may have a backup of the database.
