You could purchase change management software

You could also configure logging " logging trap debug", configure AAA Authentication and create individual user accounts,  this setup should track the users' actions and command activity and writte into your log file.
Take a look at DeviceExpert from ManageEngine the license fee is $795 for 10 devices.

Was looking for something to track a user thr was just in my firewall now. He claims he did not do something and I know he did just thought there was a way to track that.
Create individual account, enable AAAauthentication, enable logging, maybe also set up a syslog server. This should track access and commands. Setup regular backups of config and compare.
With AAA accounting (TACACS, TACACS+) you can log any command that any user has been performing on your box. There is commercial software as Cisco ACS and free TACACS servers on sourceforge.

At noted above, there are several things you can do to get this information - in the future.
Unfortunately, what has already been done was most likely not tracked. Check the log buffer if that is even set up. That is the only place you can find anything at this point.

Agree with Irmoore. If nothing was set up before, the only thing you can see is that changes where made (when you're lucky). Log buffers and stuff are cleared after a reload. So if nothing was set up (i.e. external logging) it's easy to erase your tracks when changes are made :-~
