In 1894, Beggi came to Canada with his mother, Gudrun, his brother Sigurdur (Sam) and his four sisters; Sigridur (Sara), Kristbjorg (Bertha), Antonia (Annie),
Beggi and Borga. and Helga. His older brother, Anthony had come to Canada earlier and lived in Baldur. Anthony made it possible for the rest of the family to come to Canada - by sending them the fare. On coming to Canada, the family took their father’s name, Jonsson, but there were so many with the same name, there were mixups in the mail, so they decided to change their name, and they chose Isberg. The family remained in Baldur for several years, later moving to Alberta and British Columbia, except for Beggi, who stayed in Baldur. His mother, Gudrun, spent her latter years with Beggi. She died in 1931.
Kristbjorg BORGA Christianson was born on Sept. 17, 1875 in Borgarhreppi, in Myrasyslu, Iceland. She came to Canada in 1900, to Baldur, where her father Steingrimur Christianson was living. It was in Baldur where Borga met Beggi Isberg and on Oct. 12, 1902, they were married in the Grund Lutheran Church.
Beggi worked for the C.N.R. He and Borga lived a few years in Elgin, Dunrea and Belmont, coming back to Baldur in 1913. They bought a house from Beggi’s brother, Anthony, who was leaving for Alberta. Anthony had built this house in 1909, and it remained in the family until 1966, when it was sold to Roy and Ruby Wylie.
Beggi was a member of the Lutheran Church, where he taught Sunday school for many years. He enjoyed music, skating and spent many an hour cutting his own hay with a scythe. The family always kept pigs, chickens, ducks and a cow.
Borga was an active worker in the Lutheran Ladies’ Aid and she gave much of her time in helping the sick and elderly. Many hours were spent knitting for family and friends, from yarn which she carded, spun and dyed herself, having obtained the wool from farmers in the district. A highlight of Borga’s week was a trip to the Icelandic Library, for more books and discussions with other friends, who gathered there. She was an avid reader and especially loved poetry.
Beggi and Borga’s home was always open for social gatherings, such as serving coffee and lunch after the yearly "May" concert (Sumardeginn fyrsta), which was held in the Lutheran Church, with other denominations taking part. It was also a gathering place for the Young People’s Society, Ladies’ Aid meetings, card games and public debates, which were often very exciting!
Beggi and Borga had seven children: Anthony, Laura, Clara, Martin, Herman, Jonina and Emily. They all attended Baldur School and belonged to the Lutheran Church. Beggi died in 1939, and Borga died in 1967, at the age of 92.
