This online database contains Icelandic Genealogy and Family History Data including Birth, Marriage, Immigration, Occupation, Residency, Death, and Burial records. Some photos and linked stories are available and more will be added.


This database has been the life-work of Hálfdan Helgason from Iceland and was previously known as Hálfdan  Ættfræðigagnagrunnur/Genealogy Database located on GeneWeb. In October of 2013, the database was purchased by Sunna Pam Olafson Furstenau, a colleague since 2004.

Icelandic Roots is a new non-profit organization. Sunna and Hálfdan will be the Administrators of the database and will serve on the Board of Directors. 


The new software is called ”The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding© (“TNG”).” It is a powerful new genealogy product. The information is displayed in an easy to read and understand design. There are Dynamic Charts showing pedigree, descendants, relationships, timeline, and more. Surname Lists, Media,  Places,  Photos,  Histories,  Cemeteries,  Headstones, and much more that can be customized in the future. The new online database adds more functions and coordinates with online subscription capabilities.


This online database is for those of Icelandic ancestry to trace their family and to connect with others in their family.


The resources used to compile this database consist of over 600 Genealogy related books and hundreds of original sources such as church records, government records, family histories, ship lists, immigration files, census records, newspaper and journal articles, and much more.
