South Australian Integrated Land Information System
« Reply #8 on: Friday 06 January 17 01:54 GMT (UK) »
South Australian Integrated Land Information System (SAILIS), includes "historical name index of ownership" from 1858 to 1975 and historical search by address. Not the most user friendly system but better than nothing. The historical name index seems more land transfers, than point in time ownership. The search by address doesn't seem to go back far (eg early 1970s). [www.sailis.sa.gov.au]
