ORA includes a Generic Service for extracting data from any web page. ORA extracts data from standard HTML elements, such as the page title, and by searching for several forms of metadata that may exist in the page.

Control Panel

The ORA Control Panel will appear on almost all pages you visit. When you are not doing genealogical research, you may choose to disable the Generic Service. You can do that on the OraSettings page. You may also choose to use one browser for genealogical research, and another browser for other web browsing activity.

Many pages include only limited metadata and the Control Panel will include minimal data on those pages. News sites often include article title and author metadata. Sites that hope to be shared via social media will include more metadata, but those sites may not include content that is useful to your research.


The Generic Service does not support collections.
