Tier 2 Immigrant Ships

Tier 2 Ships are vessels that are considered less prevalent based on search engine patterns that we have ephemera in our collections. They typically represent intermediate class and lessor known ships of the passenger liners that sailed the oceans from the late 1800s through the mid-1900s.

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.
