I enjoyed reading your web site and am looking forward to checking it often for information on the emigration from Iceland on the St. Patrick in 1874. We have founded a new society in Nova Scotia and are researching families who settled in Markland Nova Scotia 1875-1882. We have recently published an english version of the book" Markland - Remembrance of the Years 1875-1882 by Gudbrandur Erlendsson. This book is beautifully written and recounts Erlendsson's family's stay in Nova Scotia. The publishing of this book is a project undertaken by our society and may be purchased by contacting me at my e-mail address. We also have information and numerous articles about the Icelandic emigration experiment in Nova Scotia. We would be interested in finding other stories or letters written about the Markland experience. We are particularly interested in finding pictures or drawings of the settler's cabins at Markland.

I find this site most interesting. I am a family historian who has been researching my Danish and Icelandic ancestors for many years. The family were Danish merchants in Eyrabbakki. It is only recently that I have discovered that my great great uncle Gudmundur Lambertsen was involved in the emmigration Of Icelanders to Canada, working as he did for the Allan Line. After reading the account of Gudmundur Stefansson's emmigration in 1873 on the website I feel a little ashamed about the less than scrupulous practices of my ancestor! This however is one of the fascinations and dangers of family history research I suppose! Another ancestor of mine did emmigrate himself. This was Niels M Lambertsen, who was a doctor in Winnipeg. My knowledge on all this is sketchy, if anone is in a position to help me I would be very grateful.
