Belinsohn Genealogies (Valuable Historical Records For All Researchers) #belarus #rabbinic

I recently encountered this enticing footnote:

"Beilinsohn, Moshe Eliezer, author of Megilat Yukhsin, Shelomei Emunei Yisrael: a series of booklets published in Odessa from 1851 until the early 1900’s providing very detailed genealogical material for mainly Belarus rabbinical families. Since the author included all the members of a family known to him, this is a valuable source not only for rabbis, but also for their non-rabbinic descendants."

I wonder if any of the researchers in this project have some knowledge of the Beilinsohn genealogies? Is there a compilation into an English language version? Any input is appreciated.
