Abstract: Assuming the Riemann hypothesis, we prove asymptotics for the sum of values of the Hurwitz zeta-function $ \zeta(s, \alpha)$ taken at the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta-function $ \zeta(s)=\zeta(s,1)$ when the parameter $ \alpha$ either tends to $ 1/2$ and $ 1$, respectively, or is fixed; the case $ \alpha=1/2$ is of special interest since $ \zeta(s,1/2)=(2^s-1)\zeta(s)$. If $ \alpha$ is fixed, we improve an older result of Fujii. Besides, we present several computer plots which reflect the dependence of zeros of $ \zeta(s, \alpha)$ on the parameter $ \alpha$. Inspired by these plots, we call a zero of $ \zeta(s,\alpha)$ stable if its trajectory starts and ends on the critical line as $ \alpha$ varies from $ 1$ to $ 1/2$, and we conjecture an asymptotic formula for these zeros.
