Regarding Saint Petersburg, merchants directories >from that city for
many years during 1844-1916 are searchable at
http://genealogyindexer.org.
These include the merchant's patronymic,
age, and, often, other biographical details. You can search in
Cyrillic or, if you leave the default "Add Latin -> Cyrillic" option
selected, in Latin letters. Search results link to scans on the
Russian State Library's website. The Saint Petersburg directories are
the most detailed of the many Russian Empire business directories
currently on the site (listed under the corresponding modern countries
and "Multinational").
