Yes, this is a family line that is now in the US. Descendants of William West to me include Thomas West, John West, Joseph West, etc. I am looking for any information about him, his ancestors, or descendants.

The West family line I am researching starts from myself (born 1947 in Holyoke, MA), my father (John E. West Jr.) born in Holyoke, MA, my Grandfather (John E. West, Sr) also born in Holyoke, MA to my GGF (John J. West Jr) born in Woodstock, CT to my GGGF (John J. West) who was born in the 1820's in England (maybe Hothfield). His father, my GGGGF was a William West who married a Elizabeth Betts about 1807 and had 15 children from 1808 to 1832. Hope this may help.

I am looking for information on the West family as well. I have been able to find information on the West family dating back to the 1300s, although I'm not sure of the accuracy of everything since some of it was found on Google or on other peoples family trees.
Contact me at h.j.borstel@gmail.com if you would like to know about this information.

My William West was born in Wales in 1616, but when the family came to America they lived in Pennsylvania. Before they lived in Wales they lived in England. I'm not sure when they moved from England to Wales, though.

At one time, several I posted a query on the GenForum. Basically I asked everyone to post their info on their particular William West. It received many responses and would be a good site to check for info on your particular William West.
