COVER The familiar features of Fleet Admiral E. J. King, U. S. Navy, are as famous in their own way as the elements of the mighty U. S. Navy Fleet which he once commanded. The artist, Raymond P. R. Neilson, graduated from the U. S. Naval Academy, Class of 1905, and, until his death in 1964, was an Associate Member of the National Academy. The original portrait of Fleet Admiral King is now in Memorial Hall at the U. S. Naval Academy.

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.
