    Notes 
    • The information about the children of Auguste and Marie Victoire came from the 1880 census and the birth records of the City of New Orleans. The census records of 1880 apparently contain several typos. Some children are listed with the wrong age. For example, Arthur is listed as 5, but his N.O. birth record gives the date 3/25/1856, making him 23 or 24. Victor is listed as 10, but his N.O. birth record gives the date 8/11/1858, making him 11 or 12. There are no N.O. birth records for Charles (age 3), Violate (age 4), and Louisa (age 16, born in Switzerland according to census), and Eugène (age 19). Inclusion of those five children "fills the gap" in the impressive record of births by Marie Victoire, so it is conceivable that they are her children. It's also possible that she took a trip back to Switzerland, where Louisa was apparently born.

      Marie Victoire's maiden name is listed as Hentzelin on her marriage license, but her name is listed in a variety of ways on the birth records of her children: Angelin, Angeline, Ondelslein, Henzerling, Henzenlen. (These names were listed in the index of births. So far I (Jeff Vitter) haven't checked the actual birth records. JSV 7/2000)

    Avant et après le « Aha! moment »
    Before Jeff Vitter's Aha! moment described above, Jeff and his dad did not know much at all about where the Vitter line came from. Much correspondence behind the scenes — both electronic as well as old-fashioned hardcopy letters — led up to and beyond the big discovery. This history gives an inside look at the correspondences that genealogists…

      As highlighted in "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. This history gives an inside look at the correspondences that genealogists engage in and how what we understand grows (we hope!) with time.

      When Jeff Vitter was growing up in New Orleans, his parents A. L. Vitter Jr. and Audrey (née St. Raymond) Vitter would always tell the family about their trips to France as young children to meet relatives, but they didn't know many particulars beyond their grandparents, especially on my dad's paternal side. Jeff's Aha! moment came when he combined technologies — new and old — to discover how, when, and where the Vitters came to the USA from Europe.

      The underlying theme of our website is research on relativity — our relatives pulsate outward in our time-space continuum in a series of gravitational waves spanning many generations and relationships! This page gives an overview of several family histories, beginning with Jeff Vitter's Aha! moment, which ultimately led to creation of this website.
