Online Repository Assistant (ORA) is an automated assistant for use with online repositories including Ancestry, FamilySearch, and others.

ORA combines a Windows program with a web browser extension, which when added to your favourite web browser (e.g. Google Chrome) will extract data and streamline your use of popular online services. The browser extension is compatible with Chrome, Edge, Firefox and Opera.

ORA has two functions.

One function enables you to record the status of any record in the online repository so you know if you have used it before, plan to use it, are considering using it , or have rejected the record.

The second function collects the information found in the record and transfers it to your genealogy program or another program.

This session will provide you with an introduction to ORA, the Online Repository Assistant, written by John Cardinal, to assist you with your online research and sourcing.

Please note: ORA is a subscription based service.

Presenter:  Chris Wright

This is a free event.
