The Snorri Program

Although I’ve always been aware of my heritage, my Icelandic adventure really began when I participated in the Snorri Program.  If you’re interested in exploring your roots, I don’t think there’s a better opportunity out there.  There are actually two different programs; check out the basics below and follow the links to find out more.  And if anyone has a question about the program, please leave a comment on this page and I’ll be happy to answer if I can, or pass it along to someone else if I can’t.  I can’t say enough to recommend the Snorri Program and I truly hope many others will take advantage of these incredible opportunities.
