Hi Randy, nice to see you active again! To answer one of your questions, Vibert is French and the pronunciation would be either Vee-bair or Vee-bert. Vee-bair probably if you are in the Channel Islands, Vee-bert if you are in Canada or the US. James' origin is still a mystery we all try to solve. I've often questioned the pronunciation of the name wondering if his accent had affect on the Americanization to Bibber.
