Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This
site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered
all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though
we live far apart.
My direct Westlakes were mostly located in Long Sutton, Somerset, England prior to 1848 and then after
that, Redford, Redford Twp., Wayne Co., Michigan, USA. I do have a vast collection of Westlake's throughout the United States
and England in my database.
Most of this information was obtained from talking to living relatives and from
researching public records. In the course of doing this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever
I have a lot more information on many of the family members, so if you find
a connection contact me and I'll send you what I have on your line. You can also search some of my database on-line
at WorldConnect. Just click on this link to take you to my tree on-line:
