Academic Genealogy
Academic Genealogy
On this page, we explore another kind of family tree: the academic generations created by a teacher who teaches a student how to learn, who in turn becomes a teacher who passes on that knowledge to another student, who in turn becomes a teacher who passes on that knowledge …, and so on. The cycle continues, as it has since the days of Socrates, his student Plato, and Plato's student Aristotle.

Après le Big Find!
Après le Big Find!
As highlighted at the outset of the Relativity Research page, Jeff Vitter's big personal breakthrough on his family tree was discovering when and where his paternal grandfather's ancestors came from in Europe. Jeff finds it interesting from time to time to reread his subsequent correspondence with others sharing his Aha! moment and ramping up the never-ending trek to learn more.

Photos from Vitter Family Events, June 2006
Audrey (née St. Raymond) Vitter — known to her family as "Mimi" once her grandkids started arriving — passed away in Atlanta on October 8, 2005. Her health had been declining since her husband A. L. "Père" Vitter Jr. died two years earlier. With the help of daughter Martha (Tootie), she evacuated from her home in New Orleans to Atlanta just before Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans in late August 2005. She passed away six weeks later.

It wasn't possible to bury her in New Orleans at that time because of the damage sustained from Katrina. The family had a funeral service for her in Atlanta on Saturday, October 15, 2005. In the following June, her body was brought back home to New Orleans for final burial next to A. L. And it was another occasion for the family to get together and celebrate her life.

The underlying theme of our website is research on relativity. On this page are several interesting vignettes about relatives in our time-space continuum — pulsating outward in a series of gravitational waves spanning many generations and relationships! We hope you enjoy these stories. There are many unanswered questions to resolve and more relatives to discover!
