    Histories
    George Nicolay: The German-Born Secretary Who Made Abraham Lincoln Great
    Sharon (née Weaver) Vitter's 4th great uncle George Nicolay played what is essentially today's crucial role of chief of staff to the President of the United States — and that president was Abraham Lincoln. Nicolay later became U. S. consul to France, Marshal of the U. S. Supreme Court, and Lincoln biographer.
    Martin Samuel Weaver: Kansas Homesteader
    Sharon (née Weaver) Vitter's paternal great grandfather Martin Weaver, from a family of 18 children, forged the way from Holmes County, Ohio to Miami County, Kansas and established today's Weaver Homestead in suburban Kansas City.
    Relativity Research
    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…
    The Aha! Moment That Led to This Website
    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…
    The Hochstetler Attack: Life on the Frontier
    One of the most well-known anecdotes in Amish and Mennonite history is the story of pacifist Jacob Hochstetler and the tragedy his family underwent at the Northkill Settlement in Berks County, Pennsylvania.
    The Ups and Downs of Mini-Me
    Pick someone with one of a dozen popular Amish surnames, and Sharon (née Weaver) Vitter is probably related to that person, sometimes in many ways. Such is the case with 2-foot, 8-inch-tall actor and stuntman Verne Troyer, most well known for his portrayal of "Mini-Me" in the Austin Powers movies.
    The Weaver Way: Zürich → Pennsylvania → Ohio
    This history traces the path of Sharon (née Weaver) Vitter's 4th great grandfather, Swiss immigrant Jacob Weaver Sr., who ventured from the canton of Zürich to Pennsylvania via Rotterdam on the ship Sally in 1767. His sons continued onward in the early 1800s to Ohio. Open questions remain about his ancestors in the old country.
    Vitter Holiday Cards Through the Years
    'Tis the Season to be jolly! Welcome to a tradition starting in 1945 spanning several generations of annual Christmas greeting cards, augmented from time to time with cards for other occasions.
    How the Vitters Got to Clerval
    19 years after Jeff Vitter's Aha! moment, Jean-Pierre Vitter resolves the mystery of where in Europe the Vitter family came from originally and how they got to France in the late 1700s.
    Our Loyal Guardians Rex & Queenie
    Rex and Queenie — half-ton cast-iron Newfoundland dogs — have stood guard over Vitter-Artigues homes in New Orleans for about 110 years and have a fascinating (and still mysterious) genealogy of their own.
    Exploring Clerval in 2022
    Jeff Vitter had been wanting to visit Clerval in the Doubs department of France near northern Switzerland ever since his Aha! Moment 23 years ago described above. He and Sharon Vitter finally got the chance 22 years later during a Fall 2022 trip to France full of wonderful family history visits, photos, and videos.
    Exploring Mimi's Ancestors near the Pyrénées of Southwest France
    Unlike Jeff's dad's side, where we knew very little of his lineage, Jeff's mom had a fair amount of knowledge about her ancestors, who came from around Uzan (pronounced "u-ZHANG" in the local patois) and Anères in extreme southwest France near the Pyrénées mountains. She and her mom, grandmother, aunt, and siblings visited southwest France when…
