About the Magnusson surname

Our Icelandic grandfather, Einar Jon Magnusson was born Einar Jonsson as the custom is to accept your father's first name plus son or dottir as your surname.

When my grandfather came to Canada if was to work as a fisherman on Lake Winnipeg with his uncle Magnus Magnusson.
