The Weird Family History of Iceland

Iceland has a population of 332,529 that for hundreds of years has been largely isolated from the rest of the world. Inbreeding is a constant concern due to the country’s small size, and the migration of most of the population into the capital city.

Luckily, the country’s has been literate since its founding, and because of its small population and isolation, we have marriage and birth records pretty much since the founding of the island. Everyone’s family tree is known. It is pretty neat – every Icelander today can trace their heritage back to which founding settlers they come from.

And to help prevent inbreeding today, an app was developed: Islendiga-App (English: App of Icelanders). The whole giant Icelandic family tree is on the app, and people can check to see if they are related. Its slogan is “Bump the app before you bump in bed.”

Oração poderosa para melhorar sua auto-estima e confiança.

Oração poderosa para melhorar sua auto-estima e confiança.



Salmo 40.13-17

1Ó Deus, salva-me!
Ajuda-me agora, ó SENHOR Deus.
2Que sejam completamente
derrotados e humilhados
aqueles que me querem matar!
Que fujam, envergonhados,
aqueles que se alegram
com as minhas aflições!
3Que caiam na desgraça
e fiquem cheios de confusão
aqueles que zombam de mim!
4Que fiquem alegres e contentes
todos os que te adoram!
E que os que são gratos
pela tua ajuda digam sempre:
“Como Deus é grande!”
5Eu sou pobre e necessitado;
vem depressa em meu auxílio,
ó Deus.
Tu és a minha ajuda
e o meu libertador;
não te demores em me socorrer,
ó SENHOR Deus!
