    Notes 
    • There was confusion between Alfred's name and his father's and brother's name (Auguste) on his marriage license. Just below the middle of the marriage license, it states, "Whereas, the above bounden Auguste Nicolas Vitter has applied to John L. Laresche, Third Justice of the Peace for the Parish of Orleans, and has obtained from him a License to Marry Miss Marie Hofeline." "Auguste" is a typo, which should read "Alfred".

      Alfred's character witnesses on the marriage license were Auguste Arthur Bohné (an in-law) and Albert D. Hofeline (brother-in-law). Witnesses included Auguste Vitter, Hypolite Vitter, and Albert D. Hofeline.

    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.
