The family name was spelled Berger and Belyer? in 1798 (Mai1798:Or48/Kd20).

BelingGL: see Freiburg.

BelingenGL, Kurpfalz: is some 20 miles NE of Trier city, and said by the Brabander FSL to be homeUC to a Wulf family.  This village in the 1760s surely was not in Kurpfalz but rather was in an area disputed by Kurtrier and Pfalz-Zweibruecken.

Beljakova-MillerRN, Vera: shared her information from the Warenberg FSL.

Gwen Pritzgau says that in 1765-66, 147 familes started the six villages of the Belowesch settlement, one of the four or five non-Volga colony areas in 1765-67.  Their joint FSL, which was pointed out to me by Debbie Beick, was most recently published, as “Liste der ersten Kolnisten, die 1766 ueber Oranienbaum nach Belowesch kamen” along with an introduction, “Die ersten Ansiedler der Belowescher Kolonien im Gebiet Tschernigow”, by Igor Plewe in Heimatbuch der Deutschen aus Russland 1997/1998, Stuttgart.  The List is alphabetical.  The following shows the places of origin given, followed by the relevant family names in parens:

BeltzFN: This family name is not mentioned in the Kutter FSL, yet they were there.  The 1776 and 1798 Kutter censuses make clear that Roehrich had married a widow, (Christina Beltz) and that the children (Johannes and Barbara) listed in the Kutter FSL in the Roehrich household were in fact Beltz step-children of Roehrich, the children of his wife by her former marriage.  Since no marriage is found for Roehrich in the Buedingen ML, the odds are good that his wife was also from (or from very near) the same place in Isenburg as Roehrich.  Dick Kraus found Beltzs and Peltzs in Duedelsheim but not this family.  Not found in Kuhlberg.
