The PHHS newsletter, Atlantic Crossings , very much welcomes contributions from members on lineage findings, questions and controversies, on the results of research projects.  Stories that shed light on the lives and times of Hopkins and his descendants are also needed.  The newsletter invites letters from readers as well as information on births and deaths of Hopkins family members.  The editors may also periodically request articles on priority subjects from members with particular areas of expertise. 

Please contact < This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. > if you are thinking of contributing to the newsletter, to discuss content and for guidance on length and deadlines.
