On This Page

The following sites have been evaluated for use with ORA's Generic Service. This list includes only sites that have been evaluated; the Generic Service will extract useful data on thousands of other sites.

This list was gathered partly from end-user submissions and partly by browsing sites with links to regional genealogy resources.

Some supported sites are listed in the list of tweaks which shows all the generic sites where ORA has a custom script to implement or improve data extraction.

When site takes a long time to respond, you will have to refresh the ORA Control Panel to see the correct Field values.

Australia Births Deaths and Marriages Victoriamy.rio.bdm.vic.gov.auPartially SupportedFaux TablesCSSJS

You must login before using the "my.rio.bdm.vic.gov.au" link or it will not work properly.

Detail pages are supported. Site access for family history research requires registration and login.

Result list pages use faux tables and are not supported.

Australia Obituaries Australiaoa.anu.edu.auPartially Supported

On an Obituary page, ORA extracts what it can, mostly from the text. On obituary pages, there is often a link to "Life Summary [details]", and you should follow that link to extract the details.

On a Life Summary page, ORA extracts Field values from the table. However, the table cells include multiple unlabeled values and ORA has to make educated guesses about what is what.

Riksarkivet - Swedish National Archivessok.riksarkivet.sePartially Supported

ORA's Generic Service includes a custom handler for this site that extracts information from a panel on the side of image pages. I cannot read Swedish so I do not know if the custom handler will work for all image pages on the site and that's why I classied this site as partially supported.

United Kingdom Commonwealth War Gravescwgc.orgSupportedCSSJS

The cell values in the search result tables include multiple items so the extracts are not very useful.

The detail pages do not use tables but ORA's Generic Service includes a script to extract the values and it does a good job there.

United Kingdom Find a Willprobatesearch.service.gov.ukSupportedCSS
United Kingdom FreeBMDfreebmd.org.ukSupportedCSSJS

Result tables include divider rows with the event type and date. ORA's Generic Service cannot process those values.

United Kingdom FreeCENfreecen.org.ukSupportedCSS
United Kingdom Funeral Notices UKfuneral-notices.co.ukPartially SupportedNo Tables

ORA extracts metadata only for this site. On detail pages, that includes the person's name and the publish date.

United Kingdom Old Baileyoldbaileyonline.orgPartially Supported

Important elements of the data are not in the result table so they are not extracted to ORA's Control Panel.
