At this point, I would like to thank all those individuals, who have in the last 6 years furnished GenTeam 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 1,700 members as well as the genealogical link collection found at www.GenLink.at.

An Index consisting of surname, given name, and manor was posted online at GenTeam. In the Index are almost all subjects of all confessions listed.
Both comprehensive volumes (2252 pages) with additional information like localities and professions can be ordered directly from Dr. Sperát at

You will find the church registers of the Dioceses Passau at www.matricula-online.eu.

The Archive of the Dioceses Passau and GenTeam would like to thank cordially for the transmitted corrections as well as for all new records.

7 Index of Catholic Deaths in Vienna
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.
New entries were added today of the following parishes: 01 Sankt Michael and 01 Schotten.
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.
8 Vienna: Index of Catholic Marriages
approximately 55.000 new entries - in total now over 900.000
The index of Catholic marriages of Vienna created a few years ago (1542 to appr. 1860; including the ever-present military in Vienna), will now be extended to the year 1938.
Additional entries are added from the 09 Votivkirche, 10Sankt Anton (now complete), 17 Hernals and 21 Leopoldau.
You will find a listing of all parishes with updated timeframes under Help.
I would like to express my heart-felt gratitude to Claudia Heres, Georg Marlovics, Franz Spevacek, Dipl.-Ing. Leopold Strenn and Jesko Stampa for their valuable help.
9 Church Records Indices from Lower Austria, Upper Austria, and Bohemia
Approximately 195,000 entries from Catholic Church Records were added.
At GenTeam you will find the complete list of Parishes with updated time frames under Help (Hilfestufe).
Allhartsberg, Ameis, Eibenstein, Groß, Großnondorf, Großpertholz, Kleinzell, Kottes, Krumau am Kamp, Mittergrabern, Schwarzenbach in der Buckligen Welt, Senftenberg, Stockerau und Straning.
Linz-Urfahr, Wartberg ob der Aist
Reichenau/Rychnov nad Knezou
At this point I would like to cordially thank Dominik Bichlmayer, Min.Rat.iR. Johann Frank, Franziska Heidrich, Elisabeth Kultscher, Theodora Winkler, Clemens Weidmann, Leo Pum, Mag. Gabi Rudinger-Ferger, Anna and Franz Schübl as wellas the small team of Linz.
My special calling applies solely to Graz and Linz researchers, these cities are so important to expand general indexes.
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.
