After nearly a decade of publishing this website as HTML, I have decided to update the website to WordPress. There are several reasons for this.
First, WordPress allows me the option of writing and publishing a blog post when I receive new information.
For example, since publishing this website, I received information stating that a Vietinghoff ancestor was a student and follower of Martin Luther (1483 - 1546).
I also discovered that a Vietinghoff ancestor was a student of Ludwig Von Beethoven (1770 - 1827).
Also, since this is 2019, it is now essential that websites are compatible with both computer/laptop monitors and smartphones. This quality is called "responsive" in that the layout and appearance of the website content will be displayed optimally on whatever device that website is being viewed.
Hopefully, these changes will improve the experience for our visitors.
We also welcome any comments and contacts that can add to the story of the Vietinghoffs in America.
