Re: 1897 All Empire Russian Census #russia

You did not specify which part of the former Russian Empire is of interest;  I'd recommend checking the appropriate JewishGen collections as a starting point.  FamilySearch.org has some limited information on specific districts (insofar as I could find from a broad catalog search on "Russia" and "Census - 1897".

For example, for certain districts (uyezdy) in Belarus, please see https://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/lists/intro_1897_russian_census.htm

For the city of Kyiv, scans are available online of the original documents in part of the Krakovskiy collection;  please see https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/Архів:ДАКО/384/2 -- note that the index is in Ukrainian, while the original source material is in Russian.

This is an incomplete list, I'm certain that other researchers have additional sources.
