OGRE and Wales


Welcome to the OGRE project, which provides free genealogy research material on-line.

The OGRE has grown out of a need to see an accessible, easy to use genealogy resource to catalogue gravestone monumental inscriptions and memorials in Wales, UK. This project involves photographing all headstones prior to 1930 in every graveyard in South Wales (currently working in Monmouthshire and Glamorgan). It is free to all researchers, although some of the data sets are now available for sale to help with the running costs of the site. You can find these items on the Parish Chest, or on my Lulu store for immediate download. This site also provides parish registers and records of births deaths and marriages and the 1873 Returns of Owners of Land 1873 for Wales, Ireland and Scotland.
