History

Launched on January 1, 2000, the GG Archives offers access to more than 20,000 documents and photographs, including passenger lists, original immigrant passage contracts, steamship brochures, immigration-related documents and much more.

Since 2000, the Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives or GG Archives has helped genealogists, historians and researchers, worldwide, provide a more complete social and cultural context of their family history, or historical research. Students from the third grade through college have utilized the GG Archives as a primary source in social studies and history classes.

For over years, the GG Archives has provided images and information to researchers, production companies, and other organizations, worldwide.  Production companies have utilized our photographs in movies, student film projects and television programs like “Treasure Quest – The Silver Queen” a production of the Discovery Channel about the SS Laconia (1911) of the Cunard Line.

Collection Emphasis

The site contains superb examples of many documents used by immigrants and the steamship lines that can be extremely useful for the family or professional genealogist in recording family history or determining the origin of the material you have in your possession.
