Saal near Kelheim: was in Kurbayern and is 19.5 km SW of Regensburg city centre.

SaalburgGL: an unidentified place said by the Neidermonjou FSL to be homeUC to a Jung109, and perhaps to a Miemer family.  Kuhlberg said this was in Nassau.  I can find no such place on Nassau lands.  The only Saalburg I can find is 19 miles SE of Saalfeld city, then in Reuss-Schleiz County.
