Surnames: Krentz from Zhytomir
??? A quick look indicates that immigrating Krentz clan might have had Prussian roots. Following is a long article, but it will help w/historical perspective.

You are looking for German Records from Zhytomir, which at the turn of the 19th century was the regional capital of the Vohlynskaya gubernia > Czarist Russia.

Best resource for your purposes would be Society for German Genealogy in Eastern Europe. There are very few genealogists that are more knowledgeable re German Vohlynian heritage, than Jerry Frank, the site's Creator and List Administrator. A membership will provide you entré to parish records and information, not readily available otherwise.
