The 1908 Odessa births are visible in the index posted at  


but some haven't been uploaded yet. As Alyssa wrote, the order in which the names appear is strange. Some of it looks like English alphabetical order, but not throughout. For 1908 there are no birthdates but the records for each letter are arranged by month, and sometimes the months don't appear consecutively but are in separate parts of the PDF file. That accounts for duplicates when we list the initial letters in the order in which they appear.

For 1908, the order is neither purely English nor purely Russian, even if we delete duplicate letters:
А Б В Б Д Ф Х Г Д Г Ж Г И К Я Е Ю К М Л М Н О П Р С Р С Ш Щ Ш Е Т У Ц Ч В Г Х З И
(A B V B D F Kh G D G Zh G I K Ya E Yu K M L M N O P R S R S Sh Shch Sh E T U Ts Ch V G Kh Z I)
