Icelandic Family Tree

Q: Is there a site where Icelandic family trees are listed?

My name is Karen Berg Hansen and I live in Denmark. My father’s last name was Arnbjorn and he told me I have relatives in Iceland. He has six children and we have talked about visiting our relatives in Iceland. Is there a site where Icelandic family trees are listed, or do you know of a way that I can find my family?

A: Arnbjörn is a common first name in Iceland, not a last name. Arnbjörnsson would be the last name equivalent.

You should try islendingabok.is. Almost all Icelanders from 874 to present day are listed there.

Good luck.
