    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.

    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.
