Having an intense interest in the history of the Blumberg
family in Texas, C. F. Blumberg of Seguin, Texas, recently pub-
lished the Carl F. and Catherine Ruff Blumberg Klan Book
through the New Braunfels Zeitung Print. This interesting booklet
traces the Blumberg line from Carl F. Blumberg and his wife,
Catherine Ruff Blumberg, through several generations to the
present day. The Blumbergs-father, mother, and six children-
came to Texas from Germany in 1845 as settlers of the "Mainzer
Adelsverein," better known in Texas as the German Emigration
Company, and finally settled at Schumannsville in Guadalupe
County. "There are in this Klan 1,168 members," the author says.
Texas will experience a continued interest in genealogical histories.

The two volumes of Analytical Survey of Modern European
History with Assignments and Special Exercises, by Paul V. B.
Jones (New York: Macmillan Company, 1938), indicate that
their principal assignments are based on C. J. H. Hayes, A Political
and Cultural History of Modern Europe. The first volume, or
Part I, covers the period from 1500 to 1830, while Part 11 deals
with the period from 1815 to 1937. Numerous optional readings
are given for the different topics into which the survey is divided,
and each topic has several lectures in outline and generally a map
study with appropriate directions and questions, together with
other suitable exercises. Blank sheets are inserted between the
printed assignments. Twenty-two double size outline maps ap-
pear at the end of each volume, thus giving ample opportunity
for map assignments. Finally a set of forty report cards for col-
lateral reading is included in each volume.
