Project

Scandinavian sagas

  • This project has as its aim to create on Geni an accurate representation of the genealogical information present in the parts of the Saga literature that present a reasonably coherent picture.

The sagas we work from are:

  • Snorre's "Ynglingesoga"
  • "Hvorledes Norge ble bygget" fra "Flateyarbok"
  • "Orkneysaga"
  • Landnamabok, heimskringla.no
  • The goal is that each profile mentioned in these sagas will be represented exactly once in the Big Tree, and have in his "about me" the reference to the place in the saga where he or she is mentioned, in addition to other information.
  • And more sagas/myths.
