GG Archives About Us and Administrative Information

The GG Archives is a Social and cultural history archive with many collections including primary source documents on Steamships, Ocean Liners, Passenger Lists (1880s-1950s), Immigration, World War I and II, Works Progress Administration, Historical Menus, Vintage Fashions and more.

The founder of the Archives, Paul Gjenvick, originally named the archives "The Gjenvick-Gjønvik Family History Center" and included the family history of the Gjenvick's in the United States and the Gjønvik's in Scandinavia. Gjenvick is the original but incorrect translation of Gjønvik - a unique Norwegian name that first appeared in the late 1800s.

In 2003, the name was shortened to the "Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives" to represent the family that started the archives. The family history section pertaining to the Gjenvick-Gjønvik family has since been removed and is currently being researched by various family members in Upper Midwestern US.

The GG Archives About Us & Administration section provides quick access to organizational history and information.
