By Phyllis J. Hughes, HFA Genealogist

Webmaster’s Note: You’ve probably run into her. If you’ve been searching for a Hull ancestor in the past 25 or so years, it is very likely that you’ve read her works, seen her contributions to Internet message boards, or maybe you have been fortunate to have had personal contact with her. Whatever the case, the Hull Family Association is privileged to have the services and support of Mrs. Phyllis J. Hughes, and her contributions to preserving the history of the Hulls across America has been phenomenal. She has actively promoted and advanced the purposes and goals of the association since its inception in 1985 and has continued her work in preserving the volumes of information she has compiled over the years.

Genealogical Pointers

The following articles provide a head start for the novice researcher and a helpful reminder for the experienced genealogist.

The following items will be added as soon as possible.

  • Immigrant Lists from our HFA Journals
  • Major Tools in Finding Your Hull Immigrant Ancestor


HFA members may submit queries to aid in finding new information on their ancestors.

Family Group Sheets

We are now able, upon request from our members, to send out by e-mail individual Hull/Holl/Hohl family group sheets from the HFA database (three at a time in PDF format). Even though the dates on these sheets are in some instances incomplete, they, along with the various sources cited, will serve as a guide for researching these families.

If you wish to receive these family group sheets, please limit your request to only three sheets or less, at a time, and allow at least three weeks for a response. These rules should be observed when requesting computer family group sheets:

  • Please be very specific about names, dates, and locations
  • Every sheet requested must contain a Hull, Holl, or Hohl surname. Because of time restrictions, normally we do not carry down female lines once the Hull/Holl/Hohl surname has been lost
  • If one’s line also appears in The Hull Family in America, published 1913, we are unable to send those sheets, unless they contain information not contained in that publication
  • Under limited circumstances, sheets can be sent by snail mail, but only if a large SASE, with the proper postage, is included with the request
  • Please provide your full name and your HFA Membership number and send all requests to: Phyllis J. Hughes, HFA Genealogist (genealogist [at] hullfamilyassociation.org)
