"Hopkins" Cruise to Bermuda Planned for June 2013

Caleb Johnson, author of Here Shall I Die Ashore: Stephen Hopkins, Bermuda Castaway, Jamestown Survivor and Mayflower Pilgrim, will be giving several presentations on Stephen Hopkins, the Sea Venture, and the Pilgrims, and signing books, on a cruise from Boston to Bermuda, and back, on June 14-21.  Also tentatively scheduled to present is Simon Neal, the English records researcher who has worked with Caleb researching many of the Hopkins family lines in Hampshire.  This is the second "Hopkins cruise" (the first cruise in June 2012 was a great success).  The cruise is being organized by Rick Denham of the Pilgrim Hopkins Heritage Society and also the West Texas Colony of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.  For more information and to sign up for the cruise, please visit Caribbean Sunset Cruises, or contact Rick Denham (rick@caribbeansunsetcruises.com).
