Historical Search Help

Back to top

The CorporateAffiliations.com Historical Database Search is a powerful research tool that lets you track changes to companies and personnel over time.  The database adds over 2.5 million historical records to CorporateAffiliations.com, dating back to 1993.  With this tool, you can:

  • Track corporate ownership changes over the last 10 years
  • Review Sales trends
  • Track executive moves
  • Compare all years on one easy to view screen

The historical search process is organized as follows:

  1. The search form is presented.
    --> Specify your search critera.
  2. A listing of companies matching your criteria is displayed.
  3. If you did not select a single year in your search criteria, see 4. below.  Otherwise, a comparison of data by year is displayed.  (The comparison includes a snapshot of each year since 1993 that the company existed, as well as current data.)
    --> Select a year to view a full company profile for that year.
  4. A full listing, including hierarchy, for the selected year will be displayed in a printable format.
    --> Select a company in the hierarchy to view its full profile for the selected year.
    --> Or select one of the provided links to view the current company profile, view the year-by-year comparison, refine your search, or start a new search.

*** You may also navigate to a company’s historical data from any company profile page for which historical data exists. ***
