  1. I have finally tied my heritage to Stephen Hopkins (Half 1st cousin 10X removed) after ten years of searching. It doesn't put a penny in my pocket nor a halo over my head, but I do have a sense of accomplishment. I am thankful to all who have posted their research material and book suggestions.
