Personal Information    |    Media    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All
  • Name Marie Victoire Hentzelin  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
    Name Victoria Henzenlena (in obituary) 
    Notes 
    • Marie Victoire Hentzelin had a variety of maiden names listed in the birth records: Angelin, Angeline, Ondelslein, Henzerling, Henzenlen. There were no doubt problems with the transcription. The 1880 census lists a "grandparent", possibly the father of Marie Victoire, as John Henzenhanck. Her obituary gives her name as VIctoria Henzenlena and says she was a native of New Orleans for 60 years (actually 63).

      By Swiss custom, the suffix "-in" was often used to denote a woman, especially a widow. So it's possible that her father was named "Hentzel." His name in the 1880 census is reported as "Henzenhanck." These name changes make it hard sometimes to trace people genealogically.

    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)

    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.
    The <em>Aha!</em> Moment That Led to This Website
    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 combined technologies — new and old — to discover how, when, and where the Vitters came to the USA from Europe.

      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.)
