The database ═slendingabˇk contains genealogical information about the inhabitants of Iceland, dating more than 1,200 years back. ═slendingabˇk is a collaboration
project between deCODE genetics, a research company in the field of medical genetics, and Fririk Sk˙lason, an anti-virus software entrepreneur.
The projectĺs goal is to trace all known family connections between Icelanders from the time of the settlement of Iceland to present times and register the
genealogical information in a database.
In the creation of the ═slendingabˇk database we have used various sources and both unpublished and published documents.
Most of the genealogical information comes from sources such as church records, national censuses, inhabitants registers and other public documents,
but in addition to these sources there are chronicles, books of convictions, various publications on genealogy, books about individuals within specific occupations,
lists of descendants and ancestral records as well as memorial articles to name but a few.
The database is in Icelandic and is unfortunately not available in other languages.
Access to the genealogical database ═slendingabˇk is currently limited to Icelandic citizens and legal residents of Iceland who have been issued an Icelandic
ID number (kennitala).
