We have undertaken a census of the central sources in supernova remnants (SNRs) within 5 kpc. For SNRs that have no evidence for a central source (i.e. shell-type remnants), we have begun a search for new sources with the Chandra and XMM-Newton X-ray Obervatories. This search consists of X-ray imaging, followed by deep optical, infrared, and radio observations to reject contaminating sources. Here we report on initial results of this survey.

We thank the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation for their support.
