The 1920 US Census lists my great-grandmother's place of birth as Rinefelde Ger. In 1910 it was listed as Ger German, and elsewhere is listed as just Germany.
I don't speak or read German, and there are locations that appear to be possibilities, however nothing matches that spelling. Any help is appreciated.
That might be a spelling error. It could be Reinfeld or could be https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rheinfelden_(Baden) not to be confused with the town immediately north in Switzerland also called Rheinfelden which has some intriguing history

Thank you! I believe this is likely the answer! Also, rather than suggesting "1920" as the date, I probably should have stated something closer to the date she was born - 1878.
Remember that place names are more often than not spelled the way they sound to the person taking down the information.
I had thought in a google search that might be the location, until I looked at it on a map. The parents and siblings I believe are hers were married/born in a totally different part of Germany, Ingenheim. There are birth/christening/marriage records for the parents and siblings, but nothing for her. Therefore, I want to make sure I have her attached to the right family; I used the parents' names listed on the original marriage certificate (which is in my possession) to find the family I have her attached to.
