In 1998, 88 Spiers were found in Belgium. Concidering about 10.000.000 inhabitants, this is a rather uncommon name. Most Spiers are concentrated in Flanders (northern and Flemish speaking part of Belgium) and most of the Flemish Spiers live in the Vlaamse Ardennen (Flemish Ardens), a hilly region at the south of our state Oost Vlaanderen (East Flanders). Most known cities in that region or Ronse and Oudenaarde. Other smaller concentrations of Spiers more to the north are big cities : Brussels, Ghent and Aalst (the 4 Spiers that where living there at that time were my father, my brother, my sister and me)
