My name is Alan Edward Heffel. Born 10/14/1953 to Edward Henry Heffel and Hella Dallman in Los Angeles. Edward (my father) was youngest brother od Dvid, Alexander, Nita Heffel Grandy and i believe Olive Heffel Langwell. Parents left when I was 7. I have not heard from any of these people since about then. They all had children who may be out there somewhere. I remained in California and am married with 2 small children. Children need their family history which I cannot provide. Not related to the early Kansas Heffels I dont think. Grandfather was named Alexander or David I think. Came over from Germany in 1916-1918? and died shoertly thereafter. Married to Anna Heinz or Shultz Heffel. I you have any info, would love to start piecing this puzzle back together. Please contact me at the above e-mail address and we could possible talk via phone etc. Thanks.
