Created in 1985, the National Archives of Iceland was established to preserve and collect materials related to the culture, government, and history of Iceland. First-time visitors will want to read the introduction to the National Archives contained within the "A Brief Introduction" area. Visitors can also read the complete text of the National Archives Data and learn about the official policy for preserving electronic records from various agencies in Iceland. While much of the material here is only offered in Icelandic, the National Archives Census Database is available in English. The database comes complete with instructions on how to effectively search for individuals, and there are some summary statistics from 1703 to 1890 of note in the "Statistics" area.
