Their total area is 4,466 square miles, and they extend in a south-easterly direction, for a distance of about 600 miles from the shores of Florida to the north-west of Haiti.

The islands are of coral formation, and are mostly narrow and low, the highest elevation being 400 feet, which is attained in Cat Island. Except Andros, where there is a stream which becomes a lake in the rainy season, the islands have no rivers, but good water is obtained from shallow wells.

Nassau, the well-known winter resort, situated on New Providence, is the capital of the Bahamas. The town lies on the north shore of a safe harbour which is protected by a small island called " Hog Island."

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.
