People may think it's funny, but (the app) is a necessity." The Islendiga-App — "App of Icelanders" — is an idea that may only be possible in Iceland, where most of the population shares descent from a group of 9th-century Viking settlers, and where an online database holds genealogical details of almost the entire population.
The app was created by three University of Iceland software engineering students for a contest calling for "new creative uses" of the Islendingabok, or Book of Icelanders, an online database of residents and their family trees stretching back 1,200 years.

There’s a lot of stigma attached to it, and former immigration minister Phil Woolas raised first cousin marriages in Asian communities in parliament in 2008, stating, ‘A lot of arranged marriages are with first cousins, and that produces lots of genetic problems in terms of disability’ Alan Bittles, from the Centre for Comparative Genomics in Australia, states that the risk of birth defects rises from roughly 2% in the general population to 4% for first cousins and ‘it would be a mistake to ban it.’ Professors Diane Paul of the University of Massachusetts in Boston and Hamish Spencer of the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand compared the risk of birth defects to those of mothers over 40.
Spencer spoke on countries that have banned first cousin marriage, stating, ‘Neither the scientific nor social assumptions behind such legislation stand up to close scrutiny.
Such legislation reflects outmoded prejudices about immigrants and the rural poor and relies on over-simplified views of heredity.
