I am following the ancestry of Kristín Gunnlaugsdóttir, b. 28 Dec 1834 Viđvíkursókn, Skagafjarđarsýsla, Iceland and died 29 Feb 1904 in Selkirk, Manitoba, Canada. I would appreciate help in determining the correct parentage of Guđrún Ţorkelsdóttir, b. 1786 married to Ţorsteinn Pálsson, b. about 1767, d. 28 Sep 1828.

I have one source who states her parents are Ţorkell Ólafsson, b. 1726, d. 1803 and Guđrún Jónsdóttir, b. 1771.

Another source states her parents are Ţorkell Ólafsson, b. about 1726, d. 1803 and Björg Sveinsdóttir, b. about 1730.

Both of these sources say the respective wife is Ţorkell´s first wife.
