Membership in the Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives
The GG Archives, online since 2000, needs your support. Consider becoming a member of the Archives and keeping this valuable resource for education, research, genealogy, and social and cultural history available for all.
Our materials are unique and provide context to the extensive government documents available elsewhere (generally for a fee). We were never about making the most money as our goal was to share our collections online so that everyone benefits.
The archivist at GG Archives is Paul Gjenvick. He has earned a Masters of Archival Studies from Clayton State University, Morrow, Georgia. He welcomes the opportunity to work with educators and researchers to make materials available that would otherwise be kept in private hands or lost forever and forgotten.
Why Become a Member?
Your generous support helps the Archives increase the amount of quality materials available online and helps us preserve an extensive collection of ephemera for generations to come. Since 2000, the GG Archives has provided outstanding source documents and supplemental historical materials to our patrons. We take great pride in preserving the social and cultural history -- the future of our past.
The GG Archives seeks to preserve ephemera from the late 1800s through the mid-1950s to provide researchers and students with the rich social and cultural history of many transatlantic voyages in addition to military memorabilia.
The GG Archives collection represents acquisitions and contributions-in-kind from individuals, collectors and other archives. However, acquisitions over several decades from a variety of sources make up the largest portion of our archives. Once brought into our archives, we take steps to preserve the item for the future through archival safe storage methods and procedures including climate-controlled facilities.
The generosity of our patrons like you keeps our entire website accessible and free to use by all interested patrons. We receive no public funding and rely entirely on limited advertising and membership fees of supporting patrons like you.
