Summary of the information available on GenTeam:

Complete gazetteer of Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia and South  Tyrol with parish affiliations, archival districts and links to the archives   Data from Vienna, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Burgenland, Salzburg, Tyrol, Styria, Carinthia, Vorarlberg, Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Germany.

Those that are of particular interest to those researching Jewish roots are:

Verlustliste – Casualty list WW1, where also the Jewish soldiers are included (but not named as Jewish –not certain about how many Jews are included)

Vienna – civil marriages – this is a source more for Jewish than for non-Jewish

Vienna – baptisms – about 150 entries of baptized Jews.

1.                 Military: Austro-Hungarian casualty lists 1914-1919  Already 2.2 million records

The casualty lists enumerate the wounded and killed soldiers as well as the prisoners of war of all Crown Lands of the Habsburg monarchy. In their entirety, these lists will hold approximately 3 to 3.5 million names. They include officers and one-year volunteers, but also subordinated military personnel of all denominations, including Jewish, Muslim and Protestant soldiers.

Besides many lists that have already been entered fully, among them the casualties of Przemysl 1915 as well as supplemental lists, a great number of partial lists are also online. In addition, work is in progress for many more.

Several collaborators of this project prefer to remain unnamed. I would therefore like to sincerely thank all those who have contributed to this important database, all those who are already working on further lists, as well as Frank Raschka for managing this project.

If you would like to participate in this project please contact: project manager Frank Raschka at [email protected] or [email protected]. They will then send you a sample entry table and assign you a list number.
