    A. L. & Audrey Vitter: Role Models Extraordinaires
    Jeff Vitter's parents A. L. Jr. & Audrey (née St. Raymond) Vitter (grandparent names Père and Mimi) led accomplished lives of extraordinary service and caring for others — a legacy for generations to follow (including many Domers and a killer cookbook!).
    Après le <em>Aha!</em> moment (et avant aussi!)
    Après le Aha! moment (et avant aussi!)
    As highlighted in the history "The Aha! Moment That Led to This Website," Jeff Vitter made a big breakthrough in December 2000 when he discovered when, where, and how his Vitter ancestors came from Europe to the USA. Much correspondence behind the scenes led up to and beyond that discovery, including new information about Jeff's mom's side of the family in southwest France around Uzan (pronounced "u-ZHANG" in the local patois) and Anères. This history gives an inside look at the correspondences that genealogists engage in and how what we understand grows (we hope!) with time.

    We couldn't bury Audrey "Mimi" (née St. Raymond) Vitter in New Orleans at the time of her death because of the devastation from Hurricane Katrina. When her body was brought back home for reburial eight months later, it was a time for several family events and to celebrate her life.

    Thursday Night Cookin': Mimi's Recipes for a Happy Home
    Judge Wendy Vitter put together a wonderful cook book in honor of Mimi's 78th birthday in 1998, entitled Thursday Night Cookin': Mimi's Recipes for a Happy Home. The cook book consists of the family's favorite recipes of Mimi's, along with several bons mots, family trivia, and memories. The name for the cook book came from the family's tradition of having dinner each Thursday night at the New Orleans home of Mimi & Père.

    When the Vitter kids were younger, a similar tradition existed at Mimi's parents' home at 3539 Napoleon, where Mémère and Pépère would host everyone to Wednesday night dinner, often roast chicken. Jeff liked to make little chicken sandwiches with the chicken, biscuits, and gravy, and Pépère would often make his patented goulash with all the dishes on the table mixed together. We hope you enjoy the recipes and reminiscences as well!
