Use a GRAMPS-created Narrative Website report to restore your GRAMPS database.

Use the following code getnarrative.py as a good starting point (As the Script was written for Gramps 2.2 NarrativeWeb and needs to be updated to work with Gramps 3.3)

Read the following discussion about this code at link no longer works try here Lost grdb & [1]

The program works by parsing the HTML website (also called "screen scrapping") and places the data into a comma-separated value spreadsheet. You can then import it directly into GRAMPS.

To run the program from the command line, provide the URL of the surname list, like:

 python getnarrative.py http://somewebsite.com/myfamily/ > import.csv

Then, in GRAMPS you should be able to import the file "import.csv" into an empty database.
