you can use this command: cvs status -v fliename
you ll get an output listing like that:
cvs -z9 -q status -v makefile
File: makefile         	Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:	1.1
   Repository revision:	1.1	/Repository/.../applis/makefile,v
   Expansion option:	kv
   Commit Identifier:	(none)
   Sticky Tag:		(none)
   Sticky Date:		(none)
   Sticky Options:	kv
   Merge From:		(none)

   Existing Tags:
	VERSION_7_02_07          	(revision: 1.1)
	VERSION_7_02_03_PATCH1   	(revision: 1.1)
        ...						...
	BR_V7_02_03_PATCH        	(branch: 1.1.44)

The revision of the branch here 1.1.44 is formed by the revision file where
the branch    start (here 1.1) with a number (here 44). You can write a
macro or awk pgm to
extract all the version file where the branch tag start : Its the branch
revision where you discard the last digit.

Is there anyway in CVS to retrieve all files that comprised the start of a
particular branch?

I've got a branch that I've been working on for quite some time, but we need
to see what files have changed since the branch was created a few months
ago.  Unfortunately, we didn't tag parent prior to creating the branch, so
is there any way to get back to the start of that branch?

I thought I might be able to revert my sandbox based on the date the branch
was created, but I can't seem to find that information anywhere in the log
information either.  Is there anything else I can do?
