Smoplinski, Poland: an unidentified place which the GCRA found associated with frau Mauch (nee Wedel) in 1786.

Snenkiries?: the Straub FSL entry (41) makes it look as if this were the name of a locality, with Greifenstein as the country.  I think there was some major garbling of this record, although I could be wrong.  There once was a country called Greifenstein, but it was absorbed by Solms-Braunfels in the 17th century and the fine buildings used by the Greifenstein rulers, disused, deteriorated badly. The locality, Greifenstein, endured.  My guess is that Snenkiries is a mangling of the name of the Kreis responsible for that locality.

Speyer/Speier{A.Margaretha}:  was godmother at the 7 July 1766 Luebeck baptism of {J.Adam} son of Dillman{J.Balthasar} and his Wilg wife {A.Maria} (Mai&Marquardt#1306).  Not found in Kulberg or in T, in any FSL. 

Speyer, Bruehl: said by the Schuck FSL to be homeUC to a Wuertz family.  Spelled Wertz in 1797 and 1798 (Mai1798:Mv2650,Su4,13 and Vm39).  In his first translation Pleve had spelled Speyer as Shter(?), Bruehl as Briel or Breyell(?) and Wuertz as Wirtz. It seems that something is awry with the FSL here.  Bruehl never was a country but is a town 12 km NE of the Speyer city and in the 1760s was in Kurpfalz, not in a Speyer country.  From 1405-1709 Bruehl had been part of a Condo jointly run by Kurpfalz and the Speyer Bishopric.  In 1709 the Bishop signed a treaty turning the area entirely over to Kurpfalz.  However, in this case it seems that he issued a passport for Russia for a member family of his church even though he had no legal right to do so.

SpeyerGS: in the 1760s there were two countries named Speyer.  The original one was a Bishopric (748-1803),.  The other was the Imperial City which became independent of the Bishopric in 1294. Both in the 1760s apparently were still rebuilding from war inflicted in ruins. [the modern city of Speyer is 57 miles SSW of Frankfurt-am-Main].  None of the following references mentions a locality, and none indicates which of the two countries is meant.  Said  by the Belowescher Kolonien FSL to be homeUC to a Lobauer family.  Said by the Graf FSL to be homeUC to a Glaese family.  Said by the the Rohleder FSL to be homeUC to a Pehr? family.  Said by the Straub FSL to be homeUC to a Steitz family.

SpeyerGS, [Kur-]Pfalz[sic]: said by the Seelmann FSL to be homeUC to a Zoeger family.  Neither Speyer country owed any allegiance to Kurpfalz in the 1760s so far as I have been able to find out.

Spickelhof, Prussia: an unidentified place which the GCRA found associated with a Gering family in 1797.

SpieckerFN: said by the Norka FSL to be fromUC Isenburg (no locality mentioned).  The family name was spelled both Spiegel (Nr12) and Spikart? (Gm20) in 1798 when the maiden name of the wife was later said to be Geier (Mai1798:Nr12).  A Luebeck ML says this Spiecker man married a Geil woman in 1766 (Mai&Marquardt#1184).

There are at least 17 Spielbergs in the Germanies.  One is some 7 miles ENE of Buedingen,

SpielbergGL said by the Buedingen ML to be homeUC to the Kraus woman who married a Gebel man from Petersroth (Mai&Marquardt:506).   By 1767 this couple was in Messer (FSL#77).  KS129 said this Spielberg was in the Pfalz I think Stumpp probably was wrong and that this was the town in Isenburg, some 7 miles ENE of Buedingen city.

Spielberg, Isenburg-Waechtersbach County: a parish center about 6 km NNW of Waechtersbach city.  This is most likely what the previous two entries refer to.

SpielmannFN: said by the Bergdorf 1816 census (KS:660, 220) and by his passport to have been fromUC Reilingen, Mannheim [Amt], Baden.  But no record was found in Reilingen records by GCRA; see their book for more detail.

Spiester{Gottfried}: he must have been in Luzern when his daughter {Christina} left there to marry in Schoenchen (Mai1798:Mv1624, Sn26); there in 1798 her maiden name was spelled Spistran.  This family was not found in any FSL, nor is any earlier colony indicated for them, so they may well have been Luzern first settlers.

Adam his son}, and {Georg} who went to Denmark before going to Russia.  EEE p.476 said this was homeUC to Klein{J.Jacob} who first settled in Denmark and later in Dreispitz FSL #17.  This is the same place as the following entry, except some 55 years earlier.

SponheimGL, Kurpfalz: is some 5.5 miles W of Bad Kreuznach.

Sponheim CountyGL,  Baden Margraviate: the full name was Sponheim-Starkenberg County but it was usually refered to as this short form.

Sponheim-Starkenberg CountyGS: its lands were scattered mostly to the NW and N of the Nahe River but two or three bits were to the S of it.  The quasi-indendent portion of this country was under the control of a Baden Margraviate 1444 to 1776, when the whole was subsumed into Kurpfalz. Its scattered lands ran from around Kirchberg (which may have been its northern seat) and others intermittently along the Nahe River from W of Birkenfeld on NE towards just beyond Winterburg.

Sponsheim?, Kurpfalz: an unidentified place said by the Keller FSL to be homeUC to a Lemrich family and possibly a Kastell family.  The only Sponsheim I can find is 3 miles SSE of Bingen city, but it seems to have been in Kurmainz, not Kurpfalz.
