About the Hull Family Association title image

The Hull Family Association (HFA) is a non-profit association, organized in October 1985 by a small group of Hull* descendants from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, and Colorado to develop, preserve, and exchange information on Hull history and genealogy in the United States.

Note: This website contains no publicly available information. All genealogical data is maintained off-line, and is provided to HFA members only. We regret that, due to constraints of time and effort, we cannot respond to non-member requests for genealogical information. A list of genealogical benefits for members is available here. Non-members are welcome to submit queries using this query form.

Notice to our HFA Members and Prospective Members

The HFA specializes in correcting wrong lineages, found in great numbers out on the Internet, in published and unpublished family histories, and in many other sources. We believe in documenting everything that we can. For our members, upon your request, we can send three family group sheets at a time, complete with our references, by e-mail, plus correcting errors that we spot in our members’ lineages.

Submissions Policy

All submissions to the HFA of any kind
become the joint property of the submitter
and the HFA, with the understanding that the
HFA may, using its own discretion, share this
information with others unless otherwise
requested in writing by the submitter.
The submitter’s expenses cannot
be reimbursed by the HFA.
Questions? E-mail us.
