    Photos from Mimi's Homecoming Weekend, June 2006
    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.

    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.

    Baldwin Family Feud
    Baldwin Family Feud
    Wendy (née Baldwin) Vitter's siblings Cathy (née Baldwin) Anderson, Ricky Baldwin, Kim (née Baldwin) Swig, and Kristin "Cricket" (née Baldwin) Palmer — with Cathy's husband Steve Anderson as team captain — team up as the "Anderson Family" team on five matches of the popular TV game show, Family Feud, hosted by the kissing Richard Dawson (obviously before COVID-19). They won four episodes before finally succumbing in the fifth. Wendy and her sister Pam Baldwin Lopez were in the audience, and each time they won they rushed the stage at the end to congratulate the winning team. At the time, Wendy was a senior in college at Sam Houston State University.
