Welcome to Icelandic Roots!


The volunteers at Icelandic Roots want our subscribers to explore their Icelandic heritage and enjoy their online experience. Because thousands of hours have been devoted to developing and improving our genealogy and history resources, we want to protect them for current and future
generations. To do so requires some reasonable requirements on our part and yours.

  • Terminate (or suspend) service and IRDB system access when the terms of the Agreement are violated, or when determined necessary by us.

  • Terminate service and IRDB system access when requested by you at any time for any reason.

    • Genealogy records for direct relatives, such as grandparents, great grandparents and ancestors/descendants in the same family branch of the subscriber (or immediate family members residing in the same household) may be recorded in personal (not publicly shared) paper or software genealogy records, if each record is properly attributed to Icelandic Roots. (See: Attribution, below).

    • Genealogy records for direct relatives, such as grandparents, great grandparents and ancestors/descendants in the same family branch of the subscriber (or immediate family members residing in the same household) may be linked or stored in online genealogy databases if each record is properly attributed to Icelandic Roots.
