Hank is the only appraiser I refer in the city, so if you need local help, he's good.
Does "title examination" provide enough data on an individual property this far back?
If you have that "subject" data, then are you trying to determine comparables from history?
Again, I'm just curious about the reasons.
While I'm thinking of it, I wonder if the gorilla in front of the Two Minute Car Wash in Piedmont Heights was around in 1961...hmmmm...
It's doubtful that you will be able to find this dated information by doing an independent search through public records via the internet.
We would recommend seeking a long established local appraisal company(if one exists as far back as 1961) and petition them for the information you need.
