“index of Catholic baptisms in Vienna for the years 1584-1915” You may want to change your headline. The Austro-Hungarian Empire existed only from 1867 to 1918.

    The statement was written by the GenTeam group. It is a list of titles they created. You might want to discuss the validity of that term with them.

    I am always reluctant to change words written by someone else. I usually publish other people’s words “as is.” In most cases, they know more about the records or product or service they are describing than I do so I believe their words should be maintained, whether I agree with those words or not.

    I have not examined the records myself but assume the record keeping was started by the Catholic Church long before the Austro-Hungarian Empire existed, and that the older records later became part of the present record collection. That would not be unusual.
