I found very interesting book in the library of Yad Vashem Museum:
"Censuses of jewish population in South- West Part in 1765- 1791.
Archives of S-W Russia, part 5", 2 volumes edited, by Kamanin I.,
It contains a lot of statistical information about jewish societies in
these part of Poland, which later (1795) became a part of Russia
(Volynskaya, Podolskaya, Kievskaya gubernia).Thenit was 4 "voevodstvo"
(region): Kiev (including Kiev, Zhitomir, Ovtchutch "povet"-districts),
Volyn (Lutsk, Vladimir, Kremenets povet), Podol (Kamenets,Letitchev,
Tchervonograd povet), Bratslav (Bratsslav and Vinnitsa
Every jewish society in this huge region is listed, number of jews
living, belonging to "kagal". In each place there are first and
names of 3 jews participating those censuses ( usualy between them rabi
and starosta of place).
To bad is that it was before jews used family names.
