In the next Proceedings

Next month's Proceedings will have a "now" look to it. The cover story will deal with one of the most potent of all naval threats: the cruise missile. In addition, a former numbered fleet commander makes a provocative suggestion—that the Navy do away with numbered fleet commanders—and the commanding officer of the USS Claude V. Ricketts (DDG-5) provides a first-person account of his ship's role in extinguishing fires on board the cruiser Belknap (CG-26).

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.
