    Histories
    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. This history gives an inside look at the correspondences that genealogists engage in and how what we understand grows (we hope!) with time.
    How the Vitters Got to Clerval
    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.

    Jean-Pierre solved the mystery from 17 years earlier in his report, A tous les Vitter du monde (To All the Vitters in the World), about how the Vitter family got to France. He reveals that Hérard Vitter was actually born as "Erhardus Wider" and came to Clerval, France from Bietingen (near Gottmadingen), Germany, which is on the Swiss border, three miles north of the Rhine River and five miles northeast of the northern Swiss village of Schaffhouse.
    <em>A tous les Vitter du monde</em> (<em>To All the Vitters in the World</em>)
    A tous les Vitter du monde (To All the Vitters in the World)
    A comprehensive and entertaining account of the Vitter generations. The story starts with their ancestor Hérard Vitter, who moved from "l'Autriche antérieure" to the town of Clerval in the Doubs region of France in the late 1700s. Hérard's father in the old country was Mathieu Vitter, and Hérard's son Pierre is the one described above who emigrated from France to New Orleans in 1843. Jean-Pierre chronicled many of Hérard's descendants as well as some family legends.

      This manuscript is a comprehensive and very entertaining account of the Vitter generations written by Jean-Pierre Vitter (Jeff Vitter's 4th cousin, 1x removed) in October 2002. It's easily translated, e.g., using Google Translate. The story starts with Jeff's 4th great grandfather Hérard Vitter, who moved from "l'Autriche Antérieure" to the town of Clerval in the Doubs region of France in the 1700s. Hérard's father in the old country was Mathieu Vitter, and his son Pierre is the one who emigrated from France to New Orleans in 1843. The big mystery that remained was exactly where Hérard Vitter came from originally. (See JPV's follow-on work, Le sang qui coule dans nos veines, for answers.)
