that GenTeam functions properly and continues to expand.
GenTeam is a European platform, through which historians and genealogists who work independently or as a team on databases can furnish this data free of charge to all researchers. All data at GenTeam is available free of charge. By the way, the use of GenTeam requires no membership fee.
Other developments created parallel to GenTeam are the www.GenList.at, a bilingual mailing list with more than 1,600 members as well as the genealogical link collection found at www.GenLink.at.
