Our Jets of the United States Navy

Our Jets of the Unted States Navy



The strength of America lies not only in her soil, her resources, and her people, but in the air above her. There the thunder of her great air armadas roars a warning—a warning that her freedom will not be endangered.

In Our "Jets" are presented the most interesting of our fighting aircraft, the products of the minds and skills of a really free people. Although military restrictions limit the information that the author may give about some of these aircraft, rest assured that there are none better.

C. B. Colby

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.
