Not entirely sure I understand your request.

If you want to find all redirects, go to Special Pages -> List redirects.

Alternatively, if you have access to the database, you could launch a
command such as

select a.rd_title as 'new title', b.page_title as 'old title' from
<prefix>_redirect a, <prefix>_page b where a.rd_from = b.page_id and
b.page_is_redirect = 1;

(replace <prefix>_ by whatever you defined during install.)

Hope this helps.  If not, please clarify what exactly you need.

Kind regards,
