Westra.info is a website dedicated to the forefathers and descendants of August Herlof Westra (1907). Guus was born in Batavia, the capital of the Dutch East Indies (now Jakarta, Indonesia) as a son of a high ranked government official. He was sent back to the Netherlands at young age to be raised by his aunt in Groningen. He lived in the Netherlands for most of his life. He studied medicine in the city of Groningen and was a General Practitioner between 1935 and 1976 in the village of Bathmen. He is an only child but a father to 11 children. He passed away in Bathmen in 1989.

Westra.info is designed so each Westra generation can be found as a primairy link in the topmenu. These primairy links will drop down with personal pages for individuals within these generations. Each individual Westra has his or her own webpage on this website. In the secondairy menu you will find links to general information and a photo gallery.
Furthermore there is a guestbook where visitors can leave messages.

Update 11 dec 2010


Vandaag zijn Sil en ik bezig geweest met foto's en het proberen te lezen en ontcijferen van de stamboom. Sil is erg druk geweest met inscannen en digitaliseren van foto's.
Ik heb de eerste links, eerste jaartallen (1700-1760) ingevuld op de site zelf.
