Referenced in Hjartar, p. 50 (note: We have used the Iclelandic version of the surname in this catalogue entry, as the primary name, as does Hjartar, and the website Gegnir). As indicated by the absence of listings on Amicus and Peel, this important genealogical/historical work has been almost unobtainable in Canada. Bookseller Inventory # 36246
