Some big news for those researching South Australian ancestors and history is that the South Australian land records are now online … AND free (well, at least their historical records anyway).
The South Australian Integrated Land Information System (SAILIS) website, created by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, allows users to search South Australian land records online from 1858.
The information available from SAILIS includes:
- Integrated textual and spatial information for an individual property
- Certificates of Title
- Survey plans
- Registered Dealings
- Property Interest Reports
- Valuation and Titling information
- Historical Searches
These include original images that you can view online, download and save.
Rather than me telling you how to work your way around their website, I suggest taking 5 minutes to watch this tutorial video.
If you want to explore their website more, check out the other tutorial videos SAILIS have on their YouTube Channel.
Now I know you’re all excited about these South Australian land records, so off you go, and get searching!
Thanks for sharing the news! I’m so excited about this and have already downloaded several Certificates of Title relating to one of my ancestors. 🙂
I found the Certificate of Title for my great grandfather’s first land purchase in Queenstown (Port Adelaide) in 1859 within about 10 minutes of first logging onto this site. Pay attention to Roman numerals – Vol III is volume 3, not one hundred and eleven.

Hi Christine, here’s a link to the Glossary the Lands Titles Department provides http://www.sa.gov.au/topics/planning-and-property/buying-a-home-or-property/property-contracts-finance-and-taxes/glossary-of-property-terms. If any aren’t listed there just get in touch with them and ask.
Hi Alona, I am trying to enter volume number CCCCXLII. I have tried 442 as it wants numerals but whatever way I try to put the volume number in, it does not accept it. Just wondering where I am going wrong?
