Previously, I wrote about the Incest Prevention App called ‘Sifjaspellsspillir’ or ‘Incest Spoiler’. It was created by University of Iceland students for a contest by the Íslendingabók database and its purpose is to alert two people of a possible familial connection when they tap their phones.
The database is available with a monthly or yearly subscription. Access is also available to organizations and researchers by contacting them.
While continuing to add names and other great features, the database also links you to events, dates, occupations, cemetery records and burials, photos and more.
They will assist with your genealogy research by helping you find your family tree, connecting you with family members, and providing ancestry charts and reports. All this is possible through their popular “Cousins Across the Ocean” project or you can complete their online request form for more information.
If you’re interested in finding out more, there are tips for using the database, and they also explain its history. If you have Icelandic research to do, this site and database are well worth checking out.
