ICELANDER ANCESTRY

Early Icelandic immigrants came to America in the 1850s after converting to Mormonism. Later arrivals sought economic opportunities.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 1 percent of those people said they were of Icelander ancestry.
