To find and reassign unknown objects from a particular level that I needed to remove (but still keep the objects), in Revit 2015 I created multi-category schedule that showed all elements in the project. I included in the schedule's fields helpful parameters like level, family, type and category and had the schedule sorted by level. The schedule gave me a list of all elements grouped by level and in ascending order, and I could then clearly see what objects were associated with the level I needed to remove.
