I've seen DVM rated for 120 - 240 volts.
Your idea will work as long the wires are completely disconnect from breaker box and use DVOM to check continuity........but make sure you know there are no power sources available at the wires.
I did that when I re-wire my garage electrical. No wires are connected to breaker box, I check each wires carefully so I know which wire goes where and label them.
[Somebody re-wired it before I bought my house and I haven't got any clue which wire goes where..blah..blah...]

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.
