IdtFN: said by the Krasnoyar FSL to be fromUC Laubach.

IflandFN: said by the Pfeiffer FSL to be fromUC Fulda.  Later spelled Iffland (Mai1798:Pf29).

IgelslochGL, Calw [Amt], Wuerttemberg: is some 5 miles NNW of Zavelstein town, and using his marriage records in Zavelstein found in FHL(1,528,491) the GRCA proved this was home to the Bertsch who went to Bergstal; see their book for more detail.

IgersheimGL: Said by the Boaro FSL to be homeUC to Bontraeger? and Doering families.  Might this be the town that is some 36 miles NE of Heilbronn, Baden-Wuerttemberg?  Or might it be Ingelsheim?

Ihl{Catharina}: Kulberg5412 said her husband was from Nassau.  Said by the 1798 Zug  census to be the maiden name of frau Reberger{Philipp} (Mai1798:Zg24).

Ihl{Philipp}: he was in Zug in 1798 (Zg21) as were likely children (Mv3067 and 3073, Zg27, 30 and 31), and they are listed in no FSL nor in T, nor is there any indication they moved to Zug from another colony, so they are possible Zug first settlers.

IligFN: said by both the 1816 Neudorf census (#34) and KS:316 to have come fromUC Hebsack or Grunbach, Waiblingen [Amt], Wuerttemberg. Said by both the 1858 Neudorf census (#150) and KS:321 to have come fromUC Riedselz (misspelled Diedselz in KS:321), Weissenburg [Amt], Elsass.  Using FHL#193,050, the GCRA proved their origin in Minfeld, Germersheim [Amt], Rheinpfalz.  See the GCRA book for more.   Spelled Juellich in 1820 and Juelich or Julch thereafter.  Frau Ilig/Juelich evidently was an Ulm.

IllingenGL, Vaihingen Amt, Wuerttemberg: is 2 miles NW of Vaihingen-an-der-Enz, and proven by GCRA to be home to the Buehrer family that went to Glueckstal. Mistakenly said by both the 1816 Kassel census (#48) and KS:296 to have been homeUC to the Haug/Hauck family.  See the GCRA book for more details.

Ilmshausen, Darmstadt: an inidentified place said to be homeUC to Klaer{J.Adam}.

IlsFN: said by the Walter FSL to be fromUC Lagenschwarz, Freie Adelprovinz der alten Ritter.  The family name has also been spelled Ells, Els, Ills, Iltz and Ilz.  Doris Evans says research by Anneliese Micheiwski for the Frank Research Fund confirms this origin.  An ancestor, an Uels man, from Schlotzau became an administrator of the courtyard of the count in Langenschwarz where he died in 1699.

IlsdorfGL: see Ilsdorff.

IlsdorffGL, Solms-Laubach: is near Freisenseen at 50.583 degrees latitude, 9.067 degrees longitude, and  said by the Buedingen ML to be homeUC to a Hesler woman who married in 1766 to a Schaeffer man; by 1767 this couple was in Krasnoyar; Stumpp says this Ilsdorf was near Alsfeld, Hessen (Mai&Marquardt#548).  Also spelled Ilsdorf.

IlsenburgFN, [Wernigerode County]: is some 5 miles NW of Wernigerode town, and was said by the Norka FSL #109 to be homeUC to a Giebelhaus family.  Kuhlberg said this was in Magdeburg [Duchy] which was not the case, but this family would have had to pass through nearby Magdeburg lands on their way to Russia and doubtless would have had to have Magdeburg transit papers; both Magdeburg and Wernigerode then were partially controlled by Prussia, so the larger entity, Magdeburg, may have been given responsibility for such things as passports and travel papers for both Magdeburg and Wernigerode.  

IlsfeldGL, Heilbronn [Amt], Wuerttemberg: is some 6 miles S of Heilbronn city, and mistakenly said by the 1816 Glueckstal census to be homeUC to the Schaefer family.

Inkheim, Hanau [County]: an unidentified place said by the Warenburg FSL to be homeUC to the Schmidt{Ludwig} family.  A family chart done by Prof. Pleve said this was Insheim, Hanau but the only place of this name I could find is 4 km SE of Landau-in-der-Pfalz and was in Kurpfalz in the 1760s.

Or was there insufficient knowledge of cental Euopean political geography available in Russia to enable personnel there todistinguish among these small but important countries?  The Stahl-am-Karaman FSL seems to transliterate Isenburg as Idenburg or as Rissenburg.  Unless otherwise noted none of the next six Isenburg entries mention which Isenburg and none mention any locality.
