We describe an algorithm for computing the Picard-Fuchs equation for a family of twists of a fixed elliptic surface. We then apply this algorithm to obtain the equations for several examples, which come from families of Kummer surfaces over Shimura curves, as studied in our previous work. We use this to find correspondences between the parameter spaces of our families and Shimura curves.
