Pronouncing Our Name

The Gjenvick-Gjønvik Archives name is Norwegian. The English version "Gjenvick" is pronounced with a silent "G" as in "Jenvick". The Gjønvik is the original Norwegian spelling and is sound similar to "Yawn Vik" in pronunciation. Because Gjenvick-Gjønvik is so difficult for most to spell or pronounce, we have fully embraced our moniker of GG Archives.

Did You Know?

Over our 20+ year history, technology has changed dramatically, including how we scan photographs. In 2000, our "Master" images were 96 DPI scans. Today, our "master" images employ 600 or 1200 DPI scans. The difference in quality is substantial.
