Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
www.GenTeam.eu - approximately 200.000 additional entries online
Vienna, July 10th, 2016
New at GenTeam:
1 Vienna: index of Catholic baptisms in Vienna for the years
approximately 36,000 new entries
2 Vienna: index of Catholic deaths in Vienna
approximately 53,000 new entries
3 Churchbook Registry-Indices of Lower Austria, Upper Austria,
Burgenland, Tirol and Poland
approximately 111,000 new entries
On my own account:
With today’s new online records, the 33,400 registered users have immediately 14,4 million entries at their disposal. At this point, I would like to thank all those individuals, who have in the last 6,5 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.
And Now To The Actual Update:
1 Baptismal Index Vienna
between 1585 and 1915
Approximately 36,000 new Databases, more than 1,2 million already online!
Entries from the following parishes were added: 01 Sankt Stephan, 05 Sankt Florian (Matzleinsdorf), 05 Sankt Josef Margarethen, 07 Sankt Ulrich, 10 Sankt Johann Evangelist, 18 Währing and 19 Grinzing (the numbers are the districts).
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, Cindy Lindau, Lisi Maxa, Dr. Günter Oppitz, Gerda Smodej and Judith Starke 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.
2 Index of Catholic Deaths in Vienna
approximately 53.000 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.
New entries were added today of the following parishes: 01 Schotten and 10 Sankt Anton von Padua.
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 and Franz Spevacek.

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.
