Numbers matching

I'm new to this forum and had a question about how to tell if my car is numbers matching as in are the engine or tranny original. Now I've looked through my helms manual, and searched google and a couple forums but no luck. I have found the serial numbers on engine and tranny but can't seem to find a way to decode them. Other than my h22a1 is a 49 state legal engine. That's all the helms told me about the first 3 numbers in its serial number. I'm just curious as the car has 250,000 + miles on the body and I have a hard time believing its the original engine and/or tranny. The other thing is the serial number of my vin, tranny, and engine are not the same amount of numbers. So I'm confused as to how you would tell they are matching or not. Does anyone else have any idea? Maybe another vin tag or serial number on the block or head I may be missing? I saw one post of I believe a 97-01 h22a4 and it had the same steel blue vin on the back if the block as on the dash in my 4th gen. But I can't find one of those on my block. Also heard something about three circles on head with #s in them. Haven't checked that yet, but going out shortly to take a look. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
