"The Book of Life" will be an excellent tool to those interested in genealogical research or for anyone interested in learning a bit more about their family history.

Family History on the Internet

"The Book of Life" was initiated as a project of the United Icelandic Appeal and was tied to a Donor Recognition Program for the Waterfront Centre in the year 2000. In 2009 "The Book of Life" became a prime resource for recording the family histories of life members of the New Icelandic Heritage Museum

Add Your Family Story

The New Iceland Heritage Museum is pleased to offer you the opportunity to include your family’s story in the Book of Life.

With a donation of $500 or more you are eligible to contribute up to two pages of your family history to the Book of Life (including photos). In addition a permanent plaque bearing your name will be added to the Donor Wall in the museum.

Submitting your family’s information for inclusion in the Book of Life ensures that your family’s story will be preserved and accessible to your family members around the world.  A museum volunteer will assist you with selecting your material and the layout of the pages.
