Name List, Transliterate 1908 list of 1st Guild Merchants, KievRichard BaumPending
This list is from the Russian language website
It contains 277 names, some of which are not Jewish. Both the Cyrillic and English lists are posted on the Kiev KehilaLinks website. However, personal names and town names in the English list were "translated" not "transliterated" from Russian. So, for example, instead of the surname Babushkina, the English list gives the translation "Grandma". The English list needs to be redone and entered into Excel.
