The attention of Passengers is specially drawn to the facilities provided by the Cunard Line for their American patrons in reaching London and the Continent by travelling via Fishguard on the South Wales Coast, which is now recognised as the most expeditious route.

Cunard's New Express Route via Fishguard

The " Lusitania " and " Mauretania " will leave the New York Pier at 9 a.m. and proceed direct to Fishguard, without calling at Queenstown. All other New York Steamers will call at both Queenstown and Fishguard.

The Great Western Railway provide special trains from Fishguard for London (Paddington), the Railway journey occupying about 4 hours.

Fishguard is the nearest British port to New York, and this route is therefore the most direct to London.

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.
