About Our Family Research
I have just recently begun searching for the names and stories of my Icelandic ancestors.
Both of my mother's parents and/or grandparents were born in Iceland. Her father and his parents were from Raudaskrida, Helgastadahreppur in Sudur-fiingeyjarsysla and settled in Ashern, Manitoba. Her mother's parents were from the county of Hunavatnsstsla and had settled in Saskatchewan.
Some of the surnames in my family include: Fridlundar, Henrikson, Jakobsson, Johnson, Jonsson, Ney, Oddson, Sigurdardottir, Turnbull.
