Meet our Relatives - Taylor Branch

Halldór Eggertsson Briem
Halldór Eggertsson Briem was born September 5 1852, and immigrated to Canada in 1876. He graduated from the Priest School in Reykjavík in 1875 and had also learned English. His decision to leave Iceland was sudden. His father Eggert was sheriff and needed do some administrative work on a ship sailing from Stykkishólmur to North America. He rode with his son Halldór to the ship, they realized that none of the emigrants spoke English and would need a translator once they reached their destination. Halldór spoke with his father and decided to go on board and was hired to lead the group.

Once he came to Canada he met John Taylor right away. Halldór liked the work he was doing with the immigrants and staid until the following summer. He told people that he wanted to go briefly back to Iceland to properly say good bye to his family and then return to Canada. He kept his promise and returned right away to Canada. He was editor of Framfari from 1877-1880, the first Icelandic newspaper in Canada and an indespensiple source of information about immigrant live in New Iceland. He stopped editiong the paper in early 1880 to take part in an unusually bitter religeous argument among the immigrants, and was ordained as a priest in 1880 in New Iceland.

Halldór later served as a priest in Minnesota and in Winnnipeg. John Taylor had raised and adopted his brother William´s daughter Susie Taylor and she married Halldór in September 1880. He was offered a teaching post at the new school at Möðruvellir in Iceland and accepted the offer. Susie and Halldór left Canada on August 21, 1882 and arrived in Iceland on September 17.

The couple had two sons, Haraldur who died in early August 1883 and Sigurður H. born May 16, 1895 in Reykjavík. In 1920 at the age of 25 Sigurður moved to Copenhagen and to study the violin, guitar, Mandolin and Cello. Sigurður returned to Iceland in 1929 and began teaching student´s on those instruments. Sigurður died January 19, 1968. Because of Susie´s poor health they moved to Reykjavík in 1887 where it was easier for her to receive medical attention. Halldór worked as a teacher until 1908 and published three books on How to learn English, wrote books on Geometry, Nordic Mythology and History of Iceland. His most popular book, on the Icelandic Language was reissued in five editions. He became assistant librarian at the National Library, when the University of Iceland was founded he became the first librarian at the University Library a position he held until 1925 when he retired in poor health and with poor eyesight. Halldór died on [the morning of] June 29, 1929.

Various findings on Halldor
Halldor wrote books mentioned here Plus
"Briem’s textbook was indeed an ambitious textbook for its time; and no comparable textbook intended for the non - college - bound general public, and reaching that level of complexity, has be en published since in Iceland. " pp 9 of 10 Source

Susie Briem mentions in a letter Johann Briem, a brother of Halldor's
"GEOMETRY BY HALLDÓR BRIEM The Reverend Halldór Briem (1852 - 1919) published his Flatamálsfræð i / Plane Geometry in 1889. Briem studied 1865- 71 at Reykjavík School, where he benefited from the controversial mathematics teaching described above by Jónsson. Briem stayed during 1876 - 81 in the Icelandic communities in Manitoba and Winnipeg in Canada, where he was editor of an Icelandic journal and was ordained as pastor to the immigrants. He may have become acquainted with school mathematics there, but there is no record of this. H. Briem wrote textbooks on geometry, English, Nordic mythology, Icelandic grammar and Icelandic history, in addition to plays, and made various translations into Icelandic, e.g. of the story of Robin Hood. "pp 5 of 10 Source

"...the Reverend E. Briem, was also a textbook writer. His Reikningsbók / Arithmetic (1869) was a dominant textbook for adolescents, also at the Latin School, from 1869 to the 1910s." pp 6 of 10 Source

Johann Briem
"...the New Iceland Printing Company was established. The three individuals mostly responsible for the project were Sigtryggur Jonasson and Johann Briem at Icelandic River, and Fridjon Fredericksson at Gimli."
'Icelanders in North America: The First Settlers' edited by Jonas Thor pp 111. , [60]

He is also mentioned here in a book on Riverton. pp4 "The lutheran church is located on the south- east corner of "Modruvollum"t the quarter- section taken by Sigtryggur Jonasson on November 1 st, 1876. To the south is Grund, the home of Johann Briem, the first reeve of this district, when regular municipal government was established in 1887. " , [61]

A photo of a Johann and Gudrun Briem is on page 50 in this PDF, titled '
It states his father was Olafur Briem.
Oddly, Margret Gudrun Briem is not on the Riverton Cemetery list here, "she is buried in the family plot in the Lutheran Cemetery" near their home.

    2nd Story on Valdimar [Bad Google Translation]

    In Iceland, for a long time, the hymn-book consisted of translations of the earlier hymns of the Danish hymnary. It was published under the name of Graduale which was explained to mean Messu-saungs bok (The Mass-song Book). The last edition was issued in 1773. A new hymn-book, of the first rank among modern Lutheran hymn-books, appeared in 1886. The Bible Poems of Valdimar Briem (b. 1848), have placed him in the first rank among modern hymnists.

Found old newspage on the Briem family. While all in Icelandic, Roy spotted Susie and Halldor via their son´s name. If you stare at it long enough, you will see a pattern.
It appears to be a very detailed family tree here on a few generations. Pall´s photo might be that of Halldor´s brother? Below the names below, you will see 1.a, 1.b, 1.c, etc.

[The process used by Roy to get the above here
1. check date - 1982 = 31 years, about when Roy was in his 2nd year of college.
2. Print out copies of the 2 pages to match line by line the unlisted order and OCR typos (about 2)
3. Copy the URL address into another browser tab, select the TEXT option which changes the page into Text Only.
Figure out where the beginning
and end is and text from Header or captions. Page 20 was a lot of work, 6 hrs worth.
4. Copy that into Dreamweaver CC (DW) with Paste Special-Text Only. Then go line by line adding a 1 and separating each individual.
Work-around: If you select the text directly and paste, ALL of these pages from these newspapers will break up the words individually
or line by line.
The last letter of each word will add a space.
5. Add in start/stop of column and page numbers for aid. Crop each photo in PS CC to place in-line.
Had to re-do the photo captions into text to do a Find within DW
6. Due to narrow columns, and 1982 format, located the start/stop of each column, then used the Find command in DW to replace all
hypehnated words.
7. Last step not done would be now to copy the whole article, use Google Translator Icelandic > English. Initially did this to tray
and verify this was the right related family. Due to so many incorrect words best leave it alone.

Many thanks to the group that converted thousands of these old Icelandic/English papers for online. You put the biggest and best Museums to SHAME!
