On the Cover

US Frigate Constitution. The painting of the frigate Constitution on this month's cover is by Mr. F. V. Colson of the Boston Naval Shipyard and is reproduced with his permission. The famous vessel is shown anchored in Boston Harbor. She has appeared on the cover of the Proceedings on two previous occasions, in August 1953 in Frank Vining Smith's painting of her defeating Guerrière during the War of 1812, and in August 1954 in Corné's canvas showing her leading the attack on Tripoli under Commodore Preble on 3 August 1804.

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.
