  • Name Irène Himitch  [1, 2
    Notes 
    • Donna talked with Irène Himitch, widow of Pierre Vitter, ex-Senator, and I (Jeff Vitter) corresponded with her by letter. She said that her husband had some information, which she could no longer find, that linked the family as descendants of Charles V (Charles Quint). She hinted that "Vitter" comes from "Vetter" in German, which means cousin, perhaps signifying that an ancestor was an illegitimate son of Charles Quint. This same story also surfaces among the Vitters in the Ardennes region and their many descendants in France. They have passed down stories from their ancestors that they are related to the Vitters from Clerval, but the link has not yet been determined. Jean Pierre Vitter (jvitter@aol.com) is working on finding the link. Check vitter.org/Genealogy for updated reports on Vitter ancestry.

    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.
