Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh

Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to all these joys, sail at break of day.
To our last night on shore, Drink to the foam.
Until we meet once more, Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

Anecdotal Stories and Other Naval Adventures

  • Johnsville Mutiny
    It was called the Johnsville, Mutiny, and I was there passing out guns, the only one with authority to do so. End of tale. They later made a movie (made for TV) called the Johnsville Mutiny.
  • Navy Crash - Rescue Boats - Purpose and Function
    On this particular day I'm aboard Roosevelt Roads Naval Air Station's solitary crash/rescue boat, putting together a story about the vessel's purpose and function.

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 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.
