Artigues Family Notes and Open Questions
Artigues Family Notes and Open Questions
A. L. Vitter Jr. had Artigues connections on both sides of his family: his mother (Marie) Berthe (née Artigues) Vitter was the daughter of immigrant Ferréol Jean Marie Artigues, and his 1st cousin 2x removed Marie Louise Cathalongne (daughter of 1843 Clerval immigrant Marie Louise Vitter) married immigrant Jean Ferréol "John" Artigues. Ferréol and John were 1st cousins. This history includes records about the Artigues, including several who we think are related to us but we haven't yet shown.

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.

Remembering Those Back in Uzan
Remembering Those Back in Uzan
In the 1800s, the Ferran, St. Raymond, and Cougot families lived around a small village in southwestern France called Uzan (pronounced "u-ZHANG" in the local patois). After emigrating to the U. S. A., they sponsored a monument to those from Uzan who gave their lives during World War I. It stands there still today in front of the city hall.

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.

Baldwin Family Feud
Baldwin Family Feud
Wendy (née Baldwin) Vitter's siblings Cathy (née Baldwin) Anderson, Ricky Baldwin, Kim (née Baldwin) Swig, and Kristin "Cricket" (née Baldwin) Palmer — with Cathy's husband Steve Anderson as team captain — team up as the "Anderson Family" team on five matches of the popular TV game show, Family Feud, hosted by the kissing Richard Dawson (obviously before COVID-19). They won four episodes before finally succumbing in the fifth. Wendy and her sister Pam Baldwin Lopez were in the audience, and each time they won they rushed the stage at the end to congratulate the winning team. At the time, Wendy was a senior in college at Sam Houston State University.
