Dear Researcher and Genealogist,
On my own account:
With today´s online data, more than 15,4 million entries are now available for the currently 34,200 registered users.
At this point, I would like to thank all individuals, who have furnished GenTeam over the last 6,5 years with vital information, all those who work on long-term projects, but also all those who work behind the scenes to ensure that GenTeam functions properly and continues to expand.
GenTeam is an 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.
additional developments created parallel to GenTeam are the www.GenList.at, a bilingual mailing list which more than 1,700 members as well as the genealogical link collection at www.GenLink.at.
And now to the Actual update:
1 New: Military Casualty Lists
Austrian-Hungary World War 1
In the Casualty Lists you will find the wounded, prisoners of war, and the fallen from all member countries of the Habsburg Monarchy. In total, there will be approximately 2.5 to 2.8 million entries. You will find offices, one-year volunteers, and, naturally, the whole gang with all confessions, this, also Jewish, Muslim and Protestant soldiers.
we find: Last Name and First Name, nobilization and academic degree, charge, body of troop, sub-branch, home country, district and homeland affiliation, year of birth, type of casualty (deceased, wounded or captured), in exchange back, etc.), and number of the list, numbers of additions and corrections, date of the list, page, and a link to Anno.
All the casualty lists are online; however, the originals are not in a good printing quality, so that a full-text search often does not yield a positive result.
Two of the excerpts (84 and 686) with a total of over 700 lists are already online on GenTeam. After completion, we will install expanded search functions, so that you can search for casualties in a certain hometown – for example.
I invite you cordially to participate in this fascinating project. We gladly send you a compilation and organize the number of your list. Please, contact the project manager, Frank Raschka (many thanks, Frank!) at verlustliste(a)gmail.com or kontakt(a)GenTeam.at.
2 New: Vienna – Coroner´s Inquest Protocols from 1648 onwards
in Vienna, the task of inspecting a corps was assigned to the city coroner. This office was outfitted likely in the wake of the adoption of infection procedures of 1551.
The mortem protocols of the coroner´s office have survived from 1648 to 1920 in the Wiener Stadt- und Landesarchiv (the Vienna Municipal- and Provincial Archive) with minor gaps in the early years (between 1920 to 1938 evidence certificates were published). The database contains names, date of examination, profession, residence, age, sickness, date of birth (since 1804), status (since 1811), religion (since 1841), jurisdiction (since 1867) cemetery (since 1897) and parish of death (since 1900) of each individual. The date of examination does not have to be identical with the day of death. The exception is the notation of the hour of death in the protocol.
To Martha Melchart who already reviewed the years 1648-1653, I would like to express here my gratitude.
3 New: Vienna – Jewish Community
After having been able to post the databases of these resignations in Vienna from the Jewish Community 1648-1914, made kindly available a few years ago by Dr. Anna Staudacher, we now put the index of resignations for the years 1915-1945 online on GenTeam in an own database.
4 New: Commonly Called Names in Carinthia
This database contains place, commonly called names, cadastral community, plat number, manor and arable land number as well as today´s local community. The data were collected as house and yard files within the framework of chronicles for the Carinthian communities Afritz, Klein St. Paul, Maria Saal, Rosegg, Steuerberg, and Weitensfeld. In the case of Weitensfeld, the number of deposits and the number of arable land where not investigated since only manufacturing structures were depicted here.
I would like to thank Joachim Eichert for the database.
5 Vienna – Jewish Community Registers
This database was completely rebuilt, many new entries ware added (mostly deaths) and integrated Mödling, Baden and St. Pölten (all three in Lower Austria, but with close connection to Vienna!).
Mag. Wolf-Erich Eckstein, I would like to thank you cordially for the enormous work!
At the request of many researchers, we have now also created a function to search for fathers at the births of children.
6 Dioceses Passau
approximately 202,000 new entries
Of the now approximately 3,16 million church records from the Dioceses Passau about 440,000 are marriages (now complete), about 1,4 million are baptisms, and the remainder are deaths.
In this database you will find parish, volumes, page numbers, Last Names, First Names, date/year or records, not always profession, as well as address/town. You will find the church registers of the Dioceses Passau at www.matricula-online.eu. You will also find a table listing all parishes with updated time frames and important tips under Hilfe/Info (Help/Information).
The archive s of the Dioceses Passau and GenTeam would like to thank cordially for the transmitted corrections as well as for all new records.
7 Vienna – Baptism Index between 1585 and 1915

8 Vienna and Surroundings: Index of Catholic marriages
The index of Catholic marriages of Vienna (1542-1860 including the military), which was drafted many years ago, is now extended until 1938.
Entries from the parish 09 Votivkirche ware added.
A list of all parishes with updated time frames you will find under Hilfestufe/Help.
Many thanks to Jesko Stampa.
9 Vienna: Index of Catholic deaths
Since the list of deaths in the Vienna 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.
ne entries were added today of the parishes of 01 Schotten, 01 Kontumaz/Armenhaus and 10 Sankt Anton.
You will find a table listing all parishes with updated time frames under Hilfestufe/Help.
I would like to thank Monika Fischer, Martha Melchart and Franz Spevacek.
