Appraisal - Estimate of Worth - Although the Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives focuses on documents dating from the 1880s through the 1940s produced by the various steamship companies, we are not appraisers. Accurate appraisals can normally be made by direct examination of the document. We recommend that you contact a local expert.
Try searching under "American Society of Appraisers" or "Antiques Roadshow" and look for list of appraisers they use.
Use of images from the Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives must include the following credit line text with each use: "Courtesy of the Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives"
We typically schedule projects at least a month in advance. Rush fees are charged for orders requiring a quick turn-around (usually within 2 business days).
Alternate (Higher Resolutions) Images:
We scan most of our documents at 300 DPI, acceptable for most publications (smaller docuements are scanned at higher resolutions). If you need higher resolutions (600 or 1200 DPI) made, we can quote you. The following are typical fees involved for special order high resolution images:
- Document Retrieval Fee $100
- Scanning Fee Per Image See above table for Digitized/Digital Reproduction Services
- Rush Fee $150 per order
