On my own account:
Exactly 6 years ago GenTeam began its success story: in the beginning there were only 1,3 million entries at your disposal – today there are already more than 12,8 millions. Alone in 2015, more than 31,000 registered users have visited GenTeam more than 2,6 million times to make inquiries. And now GenTeam provides again approximately 186,000 more entries for its users.
At this point, I would like to thank all those individuals, who have furnished GenTeam over the last 6 years with vital information, all those who work on long-term projects, but also all those who have worked behind the scenes to ensure 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 to all researchers. All data at GenTeam is available free of charge. The use of GenTeam also 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.
And Now To The Actual Update:
1 Dioceses Passau:
approximately 13,000 new entries
Of the now approximately 2,8 million church records from the Dioceses Passau about 440,000 are marriages and are complete, about 1,3 million are baptisms, and the remainder are deaths.
In this database you will find parish, volumes, page numbers, surnames, Christian names, Date/Year or records, many times but not always profession, as well as address /place. You will find the church registers of the Dioceses Passau at www.matricula-online.eu. You will find a table listing all parishes with updated time frames and important tips under Hilfe/Info (Help / Information).
The Archive of the Dioceses Passau and GenTeam would like to thank cordially for the transmitted corrections as well as for all new records.
2 Seigniorial Entries from Upper Austria and Lower Austria
The oldest usufructuary book of the dominion Rappottenstein (Lower Austria) 1612-1649 was updated by Magister Ingrid Schuster.
Mrs. Karin Scharrer provided GenTeam an index of seignioral sources (inventories, sales, certificates of inheritances, etc.) of Kreuzen (Upper Austria).
3 Baptismal Index Vienna between 1585 and 1915
Approximately 67,000 new Databases, more than 1 million already online!
Entries from the following parishes were added: 01 Sankt Stephan, 01 Schotten, 02 Sankt Leopold, 05 Sankt Florian (Matzleinsdorf), 07 Schottenfeld, 09 Votivkirche, 09 Lichtenthal, 10 Sankt Johann Evangelist, 18 Währing, 19 Grinzing und 21 Leopoldau.
You will find a listing of all parishes with updated time frames under Help (Hilfestufe).
At this point I would like to take the opportunity to cordially thank Eva Korbl, Eli Kultscher, Cindy Lindau, Georg Marlovits, Lisi Maxa, Dr. Günter Oppitz, Angelika Panzer, Jesko Stampa, Judith Starke, Heidi Sugden und Margarethe Tetzl, as well to all those, who already are working on other indices, which will be posted online in the near future.
I also would like to invite you to collaborate on this project. Please contact me under kontakt(a)GenTeam.at.
4 Index of Catholic Deaths in Vienna
Approximately 26,000 new entries
Since the list of the deceased in the Viennese Newspaper contains vast gaps (even with consideration of Viennese historic borders, as well as the interesting fact that on average approximately 40% entries of deceased children, 1-year and under, are missing); therefore, we at GenTeam have begun an index of Catholic Burials.
Approximately 26,000 new entries were added today of the following parishes: 01 Bürgerspital (St. Augustin), 01 Sankt Michael, and 21 Leopoldau.
Again, you will find a listing of all parishes with updated time frames under “Help” (Hilfestufe).
I would like to express my warmest thanks to Monika Fischer, Marta Melchart and Georg Marlovits.
5 Church Records Indices from Lower Austria, Upper Austria, and Styria
Approximately 78,000 entries from Catholic Church Records were added.
At GenTeam you will find the complete list of Parishes with updated time frames under Help (Hilfestufe).
Graz Dom, Graz Mariä Himmelfahrt, Graz Maria Trost, Graz Münzgraben, Graz Sankt Peter, Graz Sankt Veit, Graz Straßgang.
Courtesy of the diocesan archives of the Diocese Graz-Seckau the existing indexes, created due to the duplicates of baptismal records for the time frame of 1835-1889 are scanned, checked and corrected by OCR conversion.
At this point I would like to cordially thank the Archive of the Dioceses Graz-Seckau, Franziska Heidrich and the new teams of Linz and Graz. If you would like to also participate, please just contact me at kontakt(a)GenTeam.at. My special calling applies solely to Graz and Linz researchers, these cities are so important to expand general indexes.
We have programmed a new indices query possibility—Catholic indices: as of now, you can choose the crownland.
The ingenious Auto-complete function will help you to solve orthographic problems, for example by choosing certain regions or names. For example, if you only want to inquire about the church records from Graz, you will enter in the parish search field <Graz>. If you search for example for the city Kleinpertenschlag, of which you don’t know whether it was entered as Klein Pertenschlag, Klein-Pertenschlag, or Kleinpertenschlag, then you enter in the search field only <pertenschlag>. Though this will increase the number of hits, but it also will heighten den chance to find the entry. The often so annoying wildcards become herewith superfluous — they are not intended by GenTeam.
You can also enter parts of names to improve your rate of hits.
We would be more than happy if you too would like to play a part with GenTeam by creating a database or furnishing an already completed database. However, should you only have questions, please contact me anytime.
