  Professional and amateur genealogists alike will welcome the volumes, First Settlers of Piscataway and Woodbridge, New Jersey, by Orra Eugene Monnette. These early settlements contributed not only to the founding of later New Jersey towns, but the descendants of Piscataway and Woodbridge families migrated in large numbers to New York and Pennsylvania, to the Old Northwest, to Kentucky, and South as far as Georgia. The first three parts of this work bring together the original historical sources which have heretofore been widely scattered. Part One deals with the original patentees and earliest settlers and the localities from which they came, especially the Piscataqua Valley between Maine and New Hampshire, Newbury, Massachusetts, Jamaica and Newtown, Long Island, and Staten Island, New York. Part Two takes up the other localities from which the settlers came, New York City, various Long Island towns, Rhode Island, and Plymouth. Sixty pages of Part Two are given over to early vital records. Part Three deals with the other early towns in Middlesex County, New Jersey, contains the early gravestone records and states controversal problems touching many of these early families. Genealogists working on New Jersey lines should have access to these books.

  The Index to Genealogical Periodicals by Donald Lines Jacobus which has recently appeared should perhaps be classified as monotypic. This work lists under a name index and under a place index the important genealogical material found in fifty-one genealogical and historical magazines, northern, southern and western. While Munsell's Index to American Genealogies provided a finding list to family histories in books and magazines prior to 1900, and there are a few other genealogical indices of limited character, this is the only volume which covers so thoroughly the field of periodicals. In arrangement and clearness this work sets a new standard and will be indespensible for ready reference.

  Mayflower descendants and those who suspect that they have Mayflower ancestry will be interested to know that the



two volume Mayflower Index, published by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, is off the press. This index lists the names of all persons of Mayflower ancestry from 1620 to the present time whose ancestral lines had been approved by the Society prior to February 10, 1931, nearly 40,000 names in all. A separate index lists the names of the husbands or wives of Mayflower descendants. Future volumes will contain additional lines. This is another important work for ready reference.

  The action of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Nebraska at the conference at North Platte last April is most gratifying to the Nebraska Genealogical Society. It was decided to make the family, county and local records deposited with the genealogical research committee in Nebraska, available for publication in the Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Magazine. The printing of these records begins in the current number over the name of Mrs. R. E. Knight, Alliance, Nebraska, State Chairman of the National Committee, Genealogical Research.
