* Show log on branch
* check "stop on copy" to make it easier to find the start of the branch
(otherwise you have to go through all log entries to find it). If
checked, the start of the branch is the first log entry shown at the bottom.
* look at the 'changed paths': you will see there where the branch was
copied from and which revision (marked blue in the screenshot).
