Just to further clarify to all, the census documents I saw were handwritten in Russian. If you can figure out a couple Russian of words, you can likely read the name of your village, the surnames you are after and some of the given names.
You can print out a hard copy and ask someone on this list to translate if the task is too daunting. Or, if a Russian Orthox parish is nearby, approach them; or a college or university.

Tim: As soon as I get a chance to check each of these films, I'll put out
message as to which film number has which colonies on it.

Bill can answer for himself about what he looked at, but this is the
information that he shared with me:

Films #2373694, 2373695, 2373696 have the following 1857 censuses (I don't

know which is on which film yet):


These colonies are all on the Wiesenseite (east side of the Volga), north of

Some of these are already available from Kevin Rupp.

I will get the remainder translated, but it will take some time! More
questions? Please ask!
