EMIGRATION FOR LADIES.—The Women's Emigration Society, 13, Dorset-street, Portman Square, W., has for its object to enable women of all classes to obtain remunerative employment in the colonies, and to afford them the means of emigrating.

Application for farther particulars to be made to the secretary, at the office, where rooms are provided for intending emigrant ladies.

The Clerkenwell and Central London Emigration Club and Society has for its object the emigration of destitute and deserving persons to the British colonies, on the plan of an emigration dub, to which subscriptions are paid in weekly.

The society's address is Charterhouse Hall, 85, Goswell-road, E.C. Application for further particulars to be made to the chairman, 45, Colebrook row, Islington Green, N., by letter. —Celer et Audax.

There is a society in existence for assisting domesticated ladies to emigrate. I believe it is under the patronage of the Duchess of Teck and Lady Strangford. I have forgotten particulars; but if an addressed envelope is enclosed with inquiry to Mrs. E. L. Blanchard, 6, Adelphi terrace, Strand, I am sure " Querist" will receive a prompt reply, with all particulars, from this very courteous lady ; she has spent many years in New Zealand, and has assisted many to get there.— E. W.

"Querist" should apply to the Emigration Office (Mrs. Blanchard), Dorset-street, Portman-square; or to Misa Faithfull, Glasshouse-street, Regent-street. —One Who Has Tried It.

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
