Holstein [Condo]: lands jointly administered by the Schleswig-Holstein Danish Royal Duchy and Holstein-Gottorp Duchy.  These were scattered, sometimes disputed holdings which mostly lay SE of a line from Kiel to the mouth of the Elbe river.

Holstein [Duchies]GS, apparently there were two Holstein duchies in the 1760’s: 1) the Schleswig-Holstein Royal Duchy belonging to the Kingdom of Denmark, and 2) the independent Holstein-Gottorp Duchy.  Their lands all lay S of the Elder and N of the Elbe Rivers, N of Hamburg city, and W and N of Luebeck city.  Their possessions were interspersed and jurisdictions were often contested and ill-defined.  I have found no way to distinguish between them in the Volga FSL.  The following references included no mention of a locality.  Said by the Bauer FSL to be homeUC to a Mueller family. Said by the Boregard FSL to be homeUC to the Monz/Mons family.  Said by the Dinkel FSL to be homeUC to Elenberger and Nicolausen families.  Said by the Doenhof FSL to be homeUC to a Erksin family.  Said by the Grimm FSL to be homeUC to Marquart and possibly a Hessenbeie? family.
