I think your best bet is to use the Internet Archive and see what you can 
find there. Once the pointer is gone from InterNIC (the main clearing house 
for Domain Name information), you are hard pressed to find info about any 
domain. And once a domain is returned to the public pool I don't think 
there is s away to track historical information about ownership.
