Finding the file/plugin that inserted my Google Analytics code?

Last Modified: 2017-03-09
Hey Folks,

First time poster here...  I need to make a change to my google analytics code on my wordpress site, but cannot figure out how it was inserted.  I've checked header.php, within the child theme, etc.

Is there a way with something like firebug lite i can find the source file that inserted the code (i have other javascripts where i want to find out the how and where of how they were inserted into the page code).  

In essence, I'd like to be able to trace objects in the source code to where they came from, how they were inserted, etc.

Many thanks!!
