JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen (Austria) Gen-Team Adds New Collections to Their Website #general

GenTeam, https://www.genteam.eu/ has added 750,000 new records to their
databases on their website. While most of the new databases are not relative
to Jewish records, such an Vienna Catholic baptisms, marriages and registers
and Passau (Germany) dioceses, the Military Casualty lists of 1914-1919 in
Austria-Hungary does include Jews. I checked with my family names, such as
Meisels, Liebermann and other Austrian and Galician Jewish names and they
all had hits. The time period covered includes Galicia. For this collection,
one will find wounded, prisoners of war, the fallen form all member
countries of the Habsburg Monarchy, for a total of 3-3.5 million entries
from all religions. The soldiers include officers, and one-year volunteers.
To access the database you need to register with a username and password.
The site is free.

When you look at the collections, the new one is under military. However,
there are over 18.2 million entries online and some of the collections are
specifically Jewish, such as Jewish Resignations, Jewish Community, Jewish
Cemeteries and more. Some of the collections are not religious-specific and
include Jews, including the military records.
