Dear Researcher and Genealogist,

On my own [count]: With today´s online data, approximately 15,7 million entries are now available for the currently 34,500 registered users [registration is free].

At this point, I would like to thank all individuals, who have furnished GenTeam over the last 7 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, a bilingual mailing list which more than 1,700 members as well as the genealogical link collection at

And now to the Actual update:

1. New: Jewish Community Nuremberg, Germany: Marriages 1906-1942

As if by miracle, the marriage book of the Nuremberg Jewish Community of 1906-1942 survived the horror of the Third Reich.

A complete database of this book is now available on GenTeam.

At this point, I would like to express my warmest gratitude to Mag. Leibl Rosenberg.

2. New: Jewish Community Vienna: Divorces 1870-1942

A database of all divorces of the Jewish Community Vienna between 1870 and 1942 could be added to GenTeam now.

I would like to thank Traude Triebel.

3. 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 3 to 3,5 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. After completion, we will install expanded search functions, so that you can search for casualties in a certain hometown – for example.

The following excerpts of a total of over 720 lists are already online on GenTeam now:

1-13, 84, 99, 101, 102, 104, 108, 109, 129, 137, 140, 191, 194, 215, 232, 686. Approximately additional 280 lists are in progress.

At this point, I would like to thank Heinz Adamec, Kurt Ahne, Rudolf Gugerbauer, Leopold Gugerel Robert Kaiser, Harald Lohauß, Martin Loidolt, Leo Mittringer, Anton Müllner, Sabine Pichler, Gerald Pribas, Wolfgang Schwarz, Henriette Steiner as well as Frank Raschka, as well as all who already work on additional lists which will soon go online.

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 [email protected] or [Felix] [email protected].

5. 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. New entries were added today of the parish of 01 Schotten. You will find a table listing all parishes with updated time frames under Hilfestufe/Help. I would like to thank Monika Fischer.
