Iceland is isolated in the Atlantic between Europe and North America.
Just a few people have found their way to Iceland and settled there. Thanks to that, Iceland has a special and unique genetic pool which is very interesting for human genetics. But to find a partner for Icelandic people is another story. Today, the Icelandic population is one big family. Should a person know how far away the relation is between them and a person whom they just met?For that reason, students from Reykjavik University designed a homepage where all the family trees are stored. Nowadays, every Icelandic person can check with his personal social security number how far away he is related to someone. Just like “Bang your phone before you bang in the bed“
