The Fall of Berlin: the last battle of Hitler's Germany is recreated here in all its power and intensity by the Russian commander who led his victorious army from Stalingrad to Berlin to storm the battered capital of the German Third Reich and bring to a close in Europe the titanic struggle of World War II.

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.
