Icelandic Immigrants

I live in Vopnafjörður in Northeast Iceland. Most of the people who left Iceland after 1873 left from this area. I am part of a group here that is interested in re-establishing contact with the descendants - our cousins and (we hope) new friends.

Before I left Minnesota to live here, I did a lot of research, collecting what information I could find about people who were born in Iceland and their descendants. I grew up in SW Minn., among the Icelanders who settled there. My father´s parents were born in the Vopnafjörður area.

I have quite a few resources here, and can help with questions on this side of the water. Research on the internet is expensive, because we pay for every minute on the phone (no free local dialing in Iceland).

Any one who has information to share, or has questions, please contact me.
