For a clear, quick and well-organized explanation of the land divisions within Bavaria, a trip to Wikipedia might be very helpful - wish I'd found it years ago!
BavariaOldaPlus.jpg (2438482 bytes) This is a beautiful old map of Bavaria, date unknown, but perhaps someone can advise?  WARNING it's HUGE and will take time!  Reducing the size would probably ruin it!
1882-S-Bavaria.jpg (194726 bytes)
Southern Bavaria 1882
Southern Bavaria in 1882 (from FEETHS).  Again, a HUGE map which will take some time to load.  I didn't reduce size because it's part of a set covering all Germany, so to assure everything remains readable.
MittelfrankenDistricts.gif (7315 bytes) The 7 Districts within Bavaria
MittelfrankenReliefMap.jpg (113657 bytes)
Mittlefranken Relief map
ALL the early  Zellhoefer's AND Wellhoefer's were within 3 or 4 kreis' within Mittelfranken.  This map is rather a struggle to read, Mittlefranken borders not shown, but worth the effort.

Mittelfranken is divided again, into 7 Kreis --
these were formerly linked to http://Wikipedia.org webpages, but stopped working;
it is probably possible to go to their main site and find them.

  • Ansbach

  • Erlangen-Höchstadt

  • Fürth

  • Neustadt (Aisch)-Bad Windsheim

  • Nürnberger Land

  • Roth

  • Weißenburg-Gunzenhausen

AnsbachKreis.gif (9355 bytes) A decent map of Kreis Ansbach, a central location for Zellhoefer (and Wellhoefer). 
NeustadtAisch-BWarea.jpg (125224 bytes) This is the area of Kreis Neustadt an der Aisch-Bad Windsheim, no kreis boundaries shown.  Many Zellhoefer's lived here; some still do!
kreis Neustadt an der Waldnaab.
