Hi I'm Walter Westfall.

Welcome to my Westfall Family Genealogy home page. On this site I have compiled genealogy information about my Westfall family, and other related families. Much of the information about the Westfalls came from a book about the Westfalls researched by Ruby Genevieve (Lentz) Wilmore, the daughter of my father*s half sister Grace (Westfall) Lentz, and from internet sources. You may visit and view my genealogy pages which are listed below. Thank you very much for visiting my site.
